County reports 33 more COVID-19 cases

From Local Sources 

JASPER - The Dubois County Health Department confirms 33 more positive cases of novel coronavirus, bringing the countywide total to 118 cases.

Thirty of the county's cases have recovered and two deaths have been reported.

According to the county health department, the number of positive cases of COVID-19 have progressively increased in the past week in Dubois County, and with  more testing, the numbers will continue to increase.

“We know that increased testing means the number of positive cases will increase. This spike in positive cases has been expected especially due to the large amount of testing that has been done in the last few days.  But along with that, we are also seeing further spread of COVID-19 throughout our county,” said Dr. Ted Waflart, Dubois County Health Officer. “We can slow the spread of COVID-19, but everyone must take personal responsibility now and follow the prevention guidance. Wear a cloth face covering when in public, maintain social distancing, wash your hands frequently, and stay home if you are feeling ill.”
