A Bay Harbor Islands employee who self-isolated earlier this week has been tested positive for coronavirus, the town said Thursday.
The mayor of Bay Harbor Islands declared a state of emergency Wednesday after the town employee decided to self-isolate for possible exposure to coronavirus.
The employee has received emergency medical attention and was told to go home and self-isolate.
Employees who may have had contact with the employee now under self-isolation have been notified to contact their health provider and follow all CDC and department of health guidelines. The town's community center was also closed for a deep cleaning out of an abundance of caution, and all parks have been temporarily closed for sanitization, officials said.
