CHICAGO — A suspected COVID-19 patient at the University of Chicago Medical Center has tested negative for the virus, officials said Tuesday night.
“We remain committed to providing safe and effective care to those in our community who become infected with COVID-19. We will continue to work with federal, state and local health officials as we monitor the situation locally and nationally while also ensuring UChicago Medicine’s readiness for the various stages of the epidemic,” the medical center said.
University of Chicago Medical Center’s doctors and administrators are working closely with local, state and federal health officials as they continue to monitor the spread of the virus.
Among the four Illinois residents who tested positive is a man in his 70s, who is being treated in isolation at Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights. His wife is also in her 70s, and is now in isolation at home as health authorities prefer.
