HARRISON COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — A Kentucky physician's group has announced that three employees are being quarantined after they treated the state's first Coronavirus patient.

Family Care Associates out of Harrison County posted on their Facebook page that a doctor, physician's assistant, and nurse came into contact with a patient who tested positive for COVID-19.

According to the Facebook post, Brian T. Mulberry, MD, Kathy Hammond, APRN and Crista Crowdy, PA-C are all in quarantine but are asymptomic at this time.

The post goes on to encourage people who may have been exposed to the virus, or if you've been out of the country, to get tested based on CDC Guidelines.

Family Care Associated reportedly cannot perform the test in-house, and they encourage people who have been symptomatic to arrange for testing at Harrison Memorial Hospital.

The office will remain open for critical medical needs.
