JIC RELEASE NO. 144 - One Probable Case Reported from DLS


JIC RELEASE NO. 144 - One Probable Case Reported from DLS

One new probable case of COVID-19 was reported to the Department of Public Health and Social Services from May 24–25, 2020. The case tested positive through serology testing at Diagnostic Laboratory Services (DLS). While polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing indicates current infection, serology testing indicates the presence of antibodies from past infection with SARS-CoV-2, which is the virus that causes COVID-19. Cases that test positive only through serology testing are classified as probable cases. A case investigation will be conducted to determine any epidemiologic links to known cases.

COVID-19 test results are reported from multiple labs at varying times of the day. Cumulative test results will be provided this evening once all tests from today are finalized. 

To date, there have been 167 cases confirmed through COVID-19 testing provided with 5 deaths and 139 released from isolation. As this is an evolving situation, information is subject to change with little to no notice.
