CITY OF NEWPORT
EMPLOYEE TESTS POSITIVE FOR COVID-19
The City of Newport reported that one of its employees tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week. That employee is quarantining at home, and it is anticipated that a speedy and full recovery will occur.
Because of potential exposure to other employees, a number of employees were tested on July 7, 2020. Test results should be available late this week or early next week. The city’s goal is the health, safety, and welfare of its citizens and staff. The city is working closely with the Lincoln County Public Health Department. This situation will be closely monitored and updates will follow as needed.
