Coronavirus Patient Goes to Airport After Being Told to Isolate

PORTLAND, Maine — The Maine Center for Disease Control (CDC) reported on Monday that an individual with COVID-19 and a close contact of that individual went to the Portland International Jetport on Sunday, potentially exposing others to the virus.

The Maine CDC says the individual with COVID-19 tested positive late last week and was directed to isolate and a close contact of the positive individual was also directed to quarantine. Maine CDC says they became aware Sunday that the individual and one close contact intended to fly to Florida.

People who were at the Portland International Jetport between 12:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Sunday, September 20, may have been exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19, the Maine CDC says. The Maine CDC says those individuals should monitor themselves for symptoms and consult their health care provider to determine whether they should be tested.
