Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center officials confirm a health care worker at one of their outpatient settings has tested positive for coronavirus.

The person, who works in one of their outpatient settings, is now at home in self-isolation.

Officials are contacting patients and staff who may have been in contact with the person and directing them to self-isolate and keep an eye out for symptoms.

Although the hospital is offering more services by telehealth and postponing elective procedures, there are still times when a person needs to come in for care.

They're working to keep those interactions as safe as possible for staff and patients.
