PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. (FOX 5 DC) - A Prince George's County resident tested positive for the novel coronavirus, County Executive Angela Alsobrooks tweeted Monday.
The individual is a woman in her 50s who contracted COVID-19 during travel outside of the region, according to Alsobrooks. The woman has had no contact with school children and is presently self-quarantined at home and in good condition.
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says this case appears to be no major concern over exposure risk to the community and no connection to the previous positive cases.
Prince George's County leaders will provide additional information during a press conference on Tuesday morning.
Five other Maryland residents have tested positive for the virus — four in Montgomery County and one in Harford County after traveling overseas.
State officials said over the weekend over 60 other tests have come back with negative results for COVID-19.
