North Carolina health officials are working to identify anyone who may have been exposed to coronavirus after a Wake County resident has tested positive for the virus.
The resident traveled from Washington state after visiting the Kirkland nursing facility there that is at the center of a coronavirus outbreak, state officials said in a news conference.
Officials said the person is doing well and is in isolation at home.
They did say the person traveled back to North Carolina via airplane.
Health officials also said they are looking into anyone that may have came in contact with the person on the airplane, at the airport or once they returned to the state.
Currently, this is the state’s first and only case of coronavirus.
