Member of Kenosha Nationals Baseball Club Tests Positive for COVID-19

A person affiliated with the Kenosha Nationals Baseball Club has tested positive for COVID-19,  the club and the Kenosha County Division of Health announced jointly today. 

This individual participated in team events while infectious between Sept. 25 and Oct. 3. 

The Kenosha County Division of Health is working with the Kenosha Nationals to notify those  who may have come in contact with the infected individual. Close contacts will be required to  quarantine for 14 days from the last date of exposure. 

The Kenosha Nationals have notified all people that were in contact and have alerted them to  the measures recommended by the County Health Department and the CDC. 

Anyone who is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or is awaiting the results of a test is asked to  isolate. Symptoms include, but are not limited to: Fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of  taste or smell, fatigue and headache. 

Those who are close contacts to a COVID-19-positive individual must quarantine for 14 days  from the date of last exposure. Both isolated and quarantined individuals must remain away  from the public even if no symptoms are present. People can still spread the virus when they  are feeling well and are asymptomatic. 

“This unfortunate series of events with the baseball club underscores the importance of  isolation for those who have reason to believe they might have COVID-19,” said Kenosha  County Health Officer Dr. Jen Freiheit. “Following public health guidelines can prevent the  exposure of people to the virus and prevent the spread of COVID-19.”
