JASPER — The Dubois County Health Department confirms two more positive cases of novel coronavirus, bringing the countywide total to 171.
Of those 171 cases, 39 have recovered and the county has reported two deaths due to the virus.
Phase three of Gov. Eric Holcomb's "Back on Track Indiana" plan began today.
"As we move into Phase 3 of the “Back on Track Indiana” guidance, I am very comfortable with results of these efforts and I believe that we can continue to move forward with Governor Holcomb’s plan to reopen the state and our county," Dubois County Health Officer Dr. Ted Walfart said in a press release. "That being said I can’t stress enough that everyone must continue to be responsible to do their part to ensure the success of this effort. We all realize that people are getting aggravated and frustrated with some of the steps we have been asking them to take."
He added: "Going into the long weekend, the Dubois County Health Department and I want to emphasize the importance of continuing to follow our state and local guidelines to prevent COVID-19 spread. Even if you’re outside, being in close contact with people isn’t smart. The most effective preventative measures against COVID-19 are to continue to wear a mask, social distance, wash your hands often, and stay home if feeling ill. Understand too that the virus can transmit when you have no symptoms or mild symptoms and result in causing others to become seriously ill.”
