Health dept urges no travel, unless criticalApril 2, 2020
From Local Sources
The Dubois County Health Department urges all residents to not travel, unless critical.
Travelers returning from other countries will need to stay at home for 14 days and monitor for symptoms, according to a county health departmet news release. Many states have implemented executive orders from their governor to “stay at home.” The United States has positive cases of COVID-19 in all 50 states.
U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams has listed Indianapolis among one of six new COVID-19 hotspots. This is due to significantly growing cases, and hospitals are gearing up for an influx of COVID-19 patients. Indianapolis is listed among New Orleans, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, and Miami.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gives several considerations before travel, to help you make a better-informed decision:
• Is the virus spreading in the area where you plan to go? Check the local health department/state department websites.
• What happens if during your travel you encounter someone with COVID-19 and must stay at home to self-monitor for an extended amount of time? Or, if you become ill yourself?
• Also remember that an individual may show minor symptoms, but still spread the virus to those high-risk individuals.
