CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
Four people who recently returned to Charlotte from China are being held in self-quarantine and monitored for coronavirus symptoms, according to the Mecklenburg County Health Department.
The four individuals have not been identified publicly and are considered at "medium risk" for developing the novel coronavirus, Mecklenburg County Manager Dena Diorio told our NBC affiliate WRAL.
The four were sent home and are in voluntary, two-week self-quarantine. They do not currently have any symptoms.
"The Health Department ... will contact each individual with information and guidance and will monitor for 14 days from last possible exposure," Diorio said to WRAL. "Our communicable disease staff have been in contact with them, the appropriate document for them has been signed by the health director and the monitoring has begun."
