The number of positive cases from COVID-19 have progressively increased in the past week in Dubois County.  With more testing, the numbers will continue to increase.

We know that increased testing means the number of positive cases will increase. This spike in positive cases has been expected especially due to the large amount of testing that has been done in the last few days.  But along with that, we are also seeing further spread of COVID-19 throughout our county,” said Dr. Ted Waflart, Dubois County Health Officer. “We can slow the spread of COVID-19, but everyone must take personal responsibility now and follow the prevention guidance.  Wear a cloth face covering when in public, maintain social distancing, wash your hands frequently, and stay home if you are feeling ill.”
