A person from Umatilla County, now hospitalized in Walla Walla, Wash., has a presumptive coronavirus diagnosis, health officials announced this morning.
The person attended a youth basketball game in Weston, Ore., on Saturday.
"Under federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Prevention guidelines, other spectators who may have been in a closed environment with the individual would be considered “low-risk” exposures," state officials said.
The Athena-Weston School District has closed the gym for a deep cleaning. The gym is set apart from the main school building, which is not considered a health risk, official said.
The test on the latest patient was conducted by Washington public health authorities. The person was one of Oregon's pending cases for testing.
Officials from both states are looking into other places the person may have visited.
People who went to the basketball game can call the following numbers with questions:
- Oregon residents can call 211
- Washington residents: Washington State Department of Health: 800-525-0127, press #
- Walla Walla County: 509-524-2647
The news follows a report Friday evening that a Lake Oswego school district employee had also tested positive. Another person in that person's household now has also tested positive.
