The Nueces County Health Department is now confirming the test results came back of a possible Hantavirus incident inside a Flour Bluff home.

Health experts investigate a possible case of Hantavirus

First responders were called out in May to a medical call at a home in the 500 block of Claride Street off of Waldron Road.
