(KNZA)--A contract employee of the Holton Community Hospital has tested positive for COVID-19.

According to a release from the hospital, the employee developed symptoms associated with COVID-19 after leaving work on Thursday and now reports testing positive for the virus.

The employee is in isolation at their home.

The release says all patients and staff who are at risk for exposure have been contacted, following guidance of local public officials, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, as well as the Centers for Disease Control.

Hospital CEO Carrie Saia says they have kept efforts in place to prevent or lesson exposure---including a daily screening questionnaire, temperature checking upon arrival for all who enter the hospital, decreasing the number of visitors and requiring the use of masks.
