Health officer stresses importance of staying homeMarch 31, 2020
From Local Sources
Stopping the spread of COVID-19 remains crucial in our community, said Dubois County Health Officer Dr. Ted Waflart.
“While I do believe a majority of people are following the rules, my main concern is for those who are not,” he said. “Remember the rules: Stay home, practic social distancing and good hand hygiene. These rules are not just recommendations but orders that have been enacted by Governor [Eric] Holcomb.”
He added: “Now, more than ever, it is imperative to come together and work together to mitigate the spread of this deadly virus in our community.”
He said that even a few people not following these rules can cause a major negative impact on our efforts to safeguard the health of our friends, families and neighbors throughout Dubois County.
“We need to make every effort possible to avoid contact with others outside our home," Waflart said. "I won’t be satisfied until everyone is doing their part. We can all see the rise of hot spots in our state and in the US. We must not let that happen to our county. We are all making sacrifices for this cause. Remember we are trying to prevent serious illness and death. Together we can stop the spread of COVID-19.”
