A 54-year-old woman has tested positive for COVID-19, making her case the fourth in Muskingum County.

According to the Muskingum County Joint Unified Command Center, the woman is recovering at home. Her case is not related to any of the previously recorded cases.

Her case was preceded by a three-month-old baby who had been in contact with the first person to test positive in the county — a 48-year-old man.

Currently, there are two hospitalizations with one in the ICU.
