JASPER -- As of April 8, at 8 a.m., two more COVID-19 cases have been identified in Dubois County, according to a statement released Wednesday morning by the Dubois County Health Department.
There is now a total of 9 positive COVID-19 tests among Dubois County residents.
The Health Department is working closely with ISDH and local officials to ensure that contacts of the patients are identified and monitored. Anyone who may have an exposure risk, have been notified about potential exposures so that appropriate infection control procedures can be followed. Both patients are in isolation.
The Dubois County Health Department continues to encourage and remind everyone that we should assume all people are potentially spreading the COVID-19 virus. STAY HOME, PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING AND GOOD HAND HYGIENE.
The ISDH and Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that all persons wear cloth face coverings to cover nose and mouth when out in a community setting especially in situations where you are around other people.
Wearing a homemade fabric face mask for example is to protect people around you if you are infected but do not have symptoms of COVID-19.
