Grand Isle county has its first confirmed COVID-19 virus case.
The Vermont Health Department daily report noted the case but provided no details.
Grand Isle and Essex counties had been the only two areas in the state without any reported cases.
However, that all changed when the Health Department reported the positive test in Grand Isle.
Information about the person and hometown is not provided in the daily updates.
Gov. Phil Scott has a "stay home, stay safe" directive in place. He and Dr. Mark Levine, Vermont Health Commissioner, said Monday that they believe things are going to get worse over the next week or two before they believe the COVID-19 virus will diminish in the state.
The Islander will provide more details as they become available.

Are they not doing follow ups on places or people those who test positive may have came in contact with? If not, I would hope anyone who tested positive would take the care & time to post it somewhere along with anyone or any place they have been 48 hours prior to testing or symptoms. I know I would be sure to at least post on social media & tag people/locations in order to warn others I may have came in contact with. Prays to everyone in these very scary times.

Since this virus has a two-week incubation period, they'd need to provide data on where they've been/gone to for two whole weeks. If they are essential workers, that might be a lot. :(
