Health department gives social distancing tips

From Local Sources

As of 8 a.m. this morning, the Dubois County Health Department reports no new positive COVID-19 cases in the county.

The county currently has three positive cases.

In a news release, the health department reminded residents of Gov. Eric Holcomb’s extension of all Indiana restaurants and bars to remain carryout/pickup only through April 6.

With the extension of social distancing guidelines to at least April 30, the department says there are things to remember:

• Limit your trips to the grocery store. When going, go alone. Do not take children or other members of your household.

• Postpone any planned parties or gatherings.

• Wash your hands, and cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough.

• Stay home.

“Hold yourself and others accountable for their health, your health and the health of all of our citizens,” the department advises. “We can get through this, but it will take everyone doing their part.”
