A 7-month-old baby boy from Kershaw County South Carolina has tested positive for COVID-19, his mother says.

Courtney Doster and her husband have three young children. Their youngest, Emmett, is battling the coronavirus. Doster says his mother also tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday.

Officials with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control are not sure where His mother contracted the virus, but she had been around Emmett before she knew she was sick.

Doster says Emmett had a high fever Monday, and she spent several hours on the phone with DHEC and Prisma Health officials to figure out where a baby could be tested for the coronavirus.

“We finally were able to get an answer to get him to Urgent Care in Elgin,” she explained. “And we brought him in there, and they made us get a mask and everything, and they put us in an isolation room for him to be tested.”

There, he was also diagnosed with viral pneumonia.

On Monday night, Doster says, Emmett’s fever spiked to 104 degrees, so she rushed him to Prisma Health Children’s Hospital, where they spent the night.

The baby’s COVID-19 test came back positive Tuesday.

Doster says only Emmett has been tested for COVID-19, but she and the rest of her family are under a legal contract with the DHEC not leave their home until April 1.
