Four members of one family test positive for COVID-19 in Butler County

Four coronavirus cases confirmed by UC Health, patients released

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Four members of one family tested positive for COVID-19 in Butler County.

They were initially seen at UC Health’s West Chester Hospital and are now quarantined at home.

Three other family members are waiting for test results. Of the three, two are at home and one is hospitalized, according to the Butler County General Health District.

Five are in their 30s and the other two are in their 70s.

“We are not exactly sure where they picked up this virus. We are not saying that it’s community spread at this time. There is a possible link to a foreign country and another possible link to a state in the U.S.,” Butler County General Health District Commissioner Jenny Bailer said.

Bailer says four people who are not related to the family have tested negative and two have test results pending. 30 others are under quarantine as a precaution because they had exposure at a conference out of state.

Test results take two to three days to come back.
