The director of the Arizona Department of Health Services said Monday that the state is monitoring 250 returning travelers for coronavirus.
“We know the disease is spreading and we can expect additional cases in Arizona,” Dr. Cara Christ said during a press conference.
The virus has killed six people in the United States and more than 3,000 worldwide.
Arizona has had one case of COVID-19 since its outbreak at the start of the year. That patient, a member of the Arizona State University community, has since recovered and is no longer infected with the disease.
As of Tuesday morning, 32 Arizonans had been tested for coronavirus, tested, with one positive result and 24 negative. Six lab tests were pending.
