The county is awaiting official confirmation of the test results from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as results from the first presumptive positive case -- which county officials identified late Friday, March 13.

Brunswick County has identified its second presumptive positive case of COVID-19. 

A county press release states the individual became symptomatic while traveling in Connecticut. After returning to Brunswick County on Thursday, Mar. 12, they immediately reported their symptoms to a medical provider and were tested the same day. Since then, they've remained in quarantine.

“These individuals followed textbook precautions, wearing personal protective equipment like face masks and gloves and avoiding public interaction on their return,” Health and Human Services Director David Stanley says. “They will receive regular Public Health check-ins and did all the right things to protect themselves and others.”
