Five more Wake County residents tested positive for the coronavirus, health officials said Monday.
All five patients attended the same Biogen conference in Boston linked to more than two dozen cases.
An Indiana resident also tested positive for the novel coronavirus after a trip to North Carolina, according to a release from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. The Indiana patient also went to the Boston conference, then visited Biogen's Research Triangle Park facility for work.
Health officials said the Indiana patient had COVID-19 symptoms while in both Durham and Wake counties between March 2 and March 6. The patient tested positive while home in Indiana on March 8 and is in isolation at home.
The state health department had no immediate information on when or where the Indiana man may have traveled while in Wake or Durham counties.
Local health departments are just starting that investigation.
Wake County officials are assembling timelines for where the five local patients went before isolating themselves at home.
Those with the highest risk of infection are people with household contact with a patient, the people who live with them.
