State health officials have put Dubois County in the “red” category. 

The State Department of Health’s designation indicates high positivity and community spread of COVID-19 within the county. 

In a release, the Dubois County Health Department asks residents to physically distance, wear a mask, avoid crowds, stay home if you are sick or have been tested, and practice good hygiene.

The department urges caution in indoor spaces by keeping air moving with fans, cracking windows, and opening doors when possible.

You’re also urged to get your flu vaccine now and COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available.

Dubois County’s seven-day positivity rate topped 15 percent on the state’s Wednesday dashboard.

Dubois County’s health director Dr. Ted Waflart says if Dubois County sustains the “Code Red” designation for a two-week period, more stringent guidelines may be issued.
