Santa Clara County's first coronavirus patient released from isolation following recovery

A resident in Santa Clara County who contracted the novel coronavirus has fully recovered, health officials said. 

The health department said the man was the county's first confirmed case, but he was never sick enough to require treatment at a hospital, so he remained in isolation at home.

He was constantly monitored by public health staff throughout that time and has since been released from isolation. 

He had traveled to Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the coronavirus, and returned to Santa Clara County on Jan. 24 after flying into San Jose Mineta International Airport.
