2nd Cochise County coronavirus patient reported

A second Cochise County resident has been diagnosed with COVID-19, officials said Wednesday.

County health officials received confirmation Wednesday morning that the woman, who "just returned from overseas travel," had tested positive.

The woman "followed all self-isolation guidance and is recovering at home. A contact investigation has been completed and no threat to the community has been found," officials said.

An earlier case in the Arizona county, southeast of Tucson, "is recovering at home and remains in self-isolation," officials said Wednesday.

"It's important to note that both confirmed cases are related to domestic and overseas travel, but neither case is connected," said Cochise County Health Director Carrie Langley. "We want to remind the public that they should adhere to current travel advice from the CDC. Anyone who has recently returned from a trip should self-quarantine for 14 days, self-monitor for symptoms and social distance."
