No sooner had The Beacon posted its last update than we got word that Hyde County officials have determined that the person they earlier reported as having tested coronavirus-positive actually lives in another county, where he or she has been isolating. The person apparently has more than one address and used his/her Hyde County address when he/she was tested. In fact, the person has not traveled to Hyde County nor had any contact with people living in Hyde County.
See Hyde County’s press release here: http://hydecountync.gov/Press%20Release%20-%20Update%20on%20the%20COVID-19%20Case%20in%20Hyde%20County.pdf
I need a bigger staff, folks.
