There are now a total of five cases of coronavirus in Arizona. Here’s what we know right now:

A woman in her 40s who works in health care in Maricopa County but lives in Pinal county was identified over the weekend as presumptively testing positive for COVID-19. Two other members of that person’s household also tested positive.

Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar announced he is in self-quarantine after coming into contact with an infected individual at an East Coast conference last week.

Maricopa County Public Health Director Dr. Rebecca Sunenshine joined The Show to talk about self-quarantine, how health care workers are protecting themselves and what Arizonans can do to avoid getting and spreading the coronavirus.
