"NO arguing the fact that COVID-19 has forced us all to shift our daily lives into living a new normal.  COVID-19 isn’t going away.  We all are seeing “social distancing fatigue” and impromptu gatherings as the weather gets nicer.  Dubois County Health Department is asking everyone to just step it up a notch because not only do we have a responsibility to protect ourselves, but we also have a responsibility to protect others."

You're asked to Maintain social distancing.  Wear a cloth face covering when out in public.  Wash your hands often and cover your cough. Stay home if you are sick and avoid contact with people who are sick.
