The doctor contacted public health officials on Wednesday to request that the woman be tested for the virus.
Two students in Palo Alto, a city of 67,000 in the northwestern corner Santa Clara county, also may have been exposed to the virus, according to a letter to parents from the school's superintendent Friday.
The CDC has been under intense pressure to step up testing for the virus.
The first such case just appeared on Wednesday, in Solano County, and the patient there is a woman who was hospitalized with respiratory problems who was not properly tested for the virus for at least four days. He said healthy Americans should be able to recover if they contract the new virus. The patient is from Solano County and was intubated and on a ventilator when they arrived at UC Davis Medical Center, according to a statement from the hospital, NPR reported.
Mayor Bill de Blasio also said that the CDC has sent new kits that will allow the city to run the federal agency's test locally.
But that guidance has now changed, Redfield said. "We know how to protect ourselves".
"Definitely we will have more cases here", Peter Beilenson, Sacramento County's director of health services, said.
"We are awaiting confirmation of the test results from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but at this time we are considering this a presumptive case", said Dean Sidelinger, MD, MSed. The new toll represents a jump of 205 cases - a 150% rise from the 388 reported the day before.

He has spoken to the CDC, who he says have assured him many more test kits will soon be available.
Officials are responding as if the cases were confirmed; the results are still pending from CDC tests.
Confusion over how quickly the woman was tested for coronavirus concerned McKinsey Paz, who works at a private security firm in Vacaville. Tedros says 97 COVID-19 cases have been exported from Iran to 11 other countries.
He added: "That is simply inadequate to do justice to the kind of testing we need".
"Upon admission, our team asked public health officials if this case could be COVID-19".
"The continued increase in the number of cases", he said, "and the number of affected countries over the last few days, are clearly of concern".
Meanwhile, the World Health Organization said the risk that COVID-19 will spread and have a global impact is now "very high", raising its assessment for the coronavirus disease that's now been found in more than 50 countries.
The Oregon Health Authority told state lawmakers earlier Friday that were NO cases of the virus in the state.
Tedros also emphasized that people can protect themselves from the new coronavirus and other illnesses by washing their hands regularly with soap and water, or using an alcohol-based hand rub.
