The overall count also includes 11 positive cases that were tested by the Naval Health Research Center (NHRC) in San Diego and one confirmed positive case through Diagnostic Laboratory Services (DLS).

To date, a total of 126 cases tested positive and two were clinically diagnosed with 33 recoveries and four deaths. All 91 remaining cases are in isolation.
