JASPER — The Dubois County Health Department reported today three more positive COVID-19 cases in Dubois County, bringing the countywide case count to 69.
Twenty-nine of the 69 cases have recovered. The county has reported two deaths due to the virus.
According to a county health department press release: “Social distancing, wearing a cloth face covering in public, and good hand hygiene remain the best weapons we have to slow the spread of this virus and flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic. Remember that wearing a cloth face covering when in public is strongly recommended to protect others. Your actions play an important role in protecting yourself, friends, and neighbors.”
According to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center’s COVID-19 Dashboard, the Jasper hospital has submitted 621 tests. Of those, 546 were negative and 23 are pending. The hospital notes that a patient’s address will determine what county reports the positive case.
Memorial Hospital’s testing is not the only COVID-19 testing happening in the county now. Another COVID-19 testing site opened at the National Guard Armory last week in Jasper, a result of a partnership between the Indiana State Department of Health and OptumServe Health Services to expand testing across the state.
The Indiana State Department of Health reported today 634 new cases, bringing the statewide total to 26,053. A total of 1,508 Hoosiers have died from the virus. Another 138 probable deaths have been reported.
