JASPER — The Dubois County Health Department is reminding residents that anyone who is in a community setting and around other people needs to be wearing a cloth face covering to cover their nose and mouth.

“Please continue to be vigilant in social distancing and proper hand hygiene,” states a press release from the county health department. “We are all valuable to this fight against the control of this virus. Social distancing only works if we all participate. Take care of yourself and your families. It takes us all, including family, friends and neighbors. STAY HOME!
