The Putnam County Department of Health has confirmed a total of six confirmed positive cases in Putnam County.  The individuals have been quarantined at home and will continue to be monitored carefully.  The Department's communicable disease staff are interviewing these individuals to learn about their movements, and identify all close contacts. Contact tracing then begins, which includes asking for a detailed history of where they have traveled, worked, shopped, and more. On the basis of these answers, staff will compile a list of people who may have been potentially exposed. Staff then contacts each of these people to explain their risk. Regular communication and monitoring for symptoms of the disease continue for these contacts
