U.S. Navy Civilian in Falls Church Tests Positive for Coronavirus

A U.S. Navy civilian working in the Falls Church area has tested “presumptive positive” for coronavirus, according to the U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED).

BUMED announced earlier today (Tuesday) that its employee is at a Northern Virginia hospital receiving care according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Guidelines. The bureau is located at 7700 Arlington Blvd, Suite 5113.

The positive test result is considered a presumptive positive pending confirmation by CDC testing.

“Personnel that the individual immediately identified having close contact with have been notified and are asked to remain at their residence to self-monitor their health,” according to BUMED.

BUMED said that more precautionary measures may be taken pending an investigation by military health professionals “to determine whether any other personnel may have been in close contact and possibly exposed.”

Separately, Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) said in a statement today that he will self-quarantine after recently eating with a friend who tested positive for COVID-19 coronavirus after the dinner. The U.S. congressman said he won’t attend hearings or votes until Monday.

As of today (Tuesday), the Virginia Department of Health currently says that there are eight positive or confirmed COVID-19 cases in the commonwealth, with five in Northern Virginia.
