County's COVID-19 cases surpass 200June 1, 2020
From Local Sources
JASPER — The Dubois County Health Department confirms today three new cases of COVID-19, bringing the countywide total to 202 cases.
Seventy-one of the 202 cases have recovered and three deaths have been reported. A total of 1,416 Dubois County residents have been tested.
The department had reported seven new cases over the weekend.
According to Memorial Hospital’s COVID-19 Dashboard, the Jasper hospital has submitted 986 tests. Of those, 864 were negative and zero 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 month in Jasper, a result of a partnership between the Indiana State Department of Health and OptumServe Health Services to expand testing across the state. An ISDH strike team also tested in the county in May.
ISDH reported today 292 new cases, bringing the statewide total to 34,830. A total of 1,976 Hoosiers have died from the virus. An additional 166 probable deaths have been reported.
