Health officials will reach out to anyone who has been in close contact with the individual. 

This case is not linked to travel to parts of the world with known cases of the coronavirus strain, also known as COVID-19.

Initial reports indicate the resident attended a youth basketball game at a gym at Weston Middle School in Weston on Saturday, Feb. 29. Officials said the other people who were there at the event are considered to have a "low-risk" exposure.
