The Collin County Department of Health reported Friday that a fifth person – a 40-year-old Frisco woman – tested the supposed positive for the new coronavirus.
He has no basic medical conditions and remains in quarantine at his home. The woman, whose name has not been released, has not recently traveled outside the state, so health officials are working to determine if the case has been spread by anyone in the community, a press release said.
Collin County Health says there are 63 people monitored as of Friday afternoon.
