Rockingham County Sheriff Sam Page tests positive for COVID-19, spokesperson says

A sheriff's office spokesperson tells WFMY News 2 Sheriff Page is doing OK with the exception of feeling hoarse.

ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, N.C. — Rockingham County Sheriff Sam Page has tested positive for coronavirus, a sheriff's office spokesperson confirmed with WFMY News 2 on Friday. 

Page tested positive for the virus last week and has since been in quarantine at his home, according to Public Information Officer Kevin Suthard. 

Suthard said Page has been away from the sheriff's office and has been able to work from home. He said Page is doing fine but is still very hoarse. He's expected to return to work in-person early next week once he completes his quarantine and is given the all-clear. 

Suthard said Page has been diligently wearing masks and social distancing and instructing staff to do the same before his diagnosis.
