From Local Sources
JASPER — The Dubois County Health Department reported today eight more positive cases of novel coronavirus, bringing the countywide case count to 66.
Twenty-seven of the 66 cases have recovered. The county has reported two deaths due to the virus.
The Dubois County Health Department continues to encourage the following: “Practice social distancing, wear a cloth face covering when in public, perform frequent handwashing, and stay home if you are not feeling well. We all must do our part to protect the health and wellbeing of others!”
According to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center’s COVID-19 Dashboard, the Jasper hospital has submitted 591 tests. Of those, 506 were negative and 18 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 Tuesday 566 new cases, bringing the statewide total to 25,127. A total of 1,444 Hoosiers have died from the virus. Another 143 probable deaths have been reported.
