Curry County COVID-19 positive case appears to be travel related

CLOVIS (KSMX)- This morning, March 24, radio officials for RooneyMoon Broadcasting interviewed the Executive Director of Plains Regional Medical Center, Drew Dostel, on-air where he confirmed that the record of residency for a positive case of COVID-19 is in fact Curry County.

County Manager Lance Pyle has confirmed that he was contacted by Governor Lujan Grisham’s office this morning and was told Curry County has a positive COVID-19 test and that “it is a female in her 50s and appears to be travel related”.

We are working with NMDOH to see if there is a list compiled of exposure locations the individual may or may not have been too, and will release that information when it is made available.
