Evansville Rescue Mission officials shared one of their residents has tested positive for COVID-19, and is currently receiving care at a local hospital.

Leaders with the shelter cited HIPAA regulations as limiting their ability to share additional specifics about the case.

On Wednesday, 27 people living at the Mission were tested as part of potential exposures and contact tracing. As they await their results, they are quarantining separately throughout the Men's Residence Center.

The organization's president added that the Vanderburgh County Health Department would be helping test the remainder of those living there Thursday. Until then, residents are being asked to remain on the property.
