746 people in Washington now under supervision for coronavirus

What in the hell do they mean by “under supervision?”
____________

According to KHQ-TV in Spokane, Washington, “another 34 people in Washington state are now under public health supervision for coronavirus.”

“The total now stands at 746 people who are at risk of having been exposed to novel coronavirus, according to the Washington State Department of Health. That number is up from 712 on Monday, Feb. 17. This includes people who are close contacts of laboratory confirmed cases and people who have returned from China in the past 14 days.”

Does “under supervision” mean that these 746 people have been quarantined? I don’t know.

The good news is that so far there has been only one case of confirmed coronavirus in the state, and “that patient has since been released from the hospital following treatment.”

  1. When I was stationed at Ft. Lewis we would get upper respiratory infections every single year. Called it the Ft. Lewis crud.

    Damp cold miserable weather. Not cold enough to deactivate the viruses, not hot enough or sunny enough to kiII them. The exact conditions viruses need to thrive.
    Didn’t help that I was a smoker.
