Swift County Monitor-News

Swift County reported its first case of COVID-19 disease Monday when a person was reported to have tested positive. Official confirmation of the case was expected from the Minnesota Department of Health later Tuesday after the Monitor-News had gone to press.

The person is in her 20s and her contracting the disease is likely travel related. She is currently following Minnesota Department of Health recommendations and self-isolating at home in Benson.

Swift County’s first case comes one month after the first case of COVID-19 was confirmed in the state March 6. The diagnosis brings the reality of the deadly virus to the county and underscores the necessity for strict observation of the social distancing measures the community has been repeatedly urged to follow in recent weeks.
