A soldier mobilized with the Florida National Guard in support of the COVID-19 response in south Florida has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.

The male soldier, 26, reported for duty at the Miramar Readiness Center on March 17. He exhibited symptoms of the virus and was placed in self-isolation at his home of record on March 19.

“While activated for the response, he did not interact with the public in support of the FLNG COVID-19 response because his symptoms were identified and the appropriate precautions were taken,” FLNG officials said in a release issued Sunday evening.
