Thanks for your comment. From my understanding, Greene County Public Health does not require the person who was self-isolating for two weeks after testing positive to receive a negative test result before re-entering society. Many of the sports leagues that are re-starting do, which may be a reason for the confusion.
Greene County is now beginning to report individuals who are “presumed recovered” from COVID-19. As of July 11, 192 people who were sick with COVID-19 in the county are now presumed recovered.
As for asymptomatic people passing on the virus, the World Health Organization did say in June that looks to be less of an issue than previously feared. Instead, the more significant issue are pre-symptomatic individuals, who don’t know they are sick yet. However, some other health experts contended that claim. An article on that issue is here: https://www.statnews.com/2020/06/09/who-comments-asymptomatic-spread-covid-19.
