CentraState Medical Center is treating a patient who has presumptively tested positive for COVID-19. This case was confirmed through lab results performed by the New Jersey Department of Health. The sample was sent to the CDC for final confirmation. At this time, the patient, a man in his 50s, remains in isolation and is receiving ongoing care. Our team at CentraState Medical Center recognized the serious impact this virus could have and has been working collaboratively with state and local health officials to prepare for when this might affect our communities. CentraState swiftly identified, evaluated and isolated this patient when he presented to our facility and is following CDC guidelines in his care and management.
