“All of us are stressed out especially with the uncertainty of this virus and where it will take us. We all are tired and want to get back to ‘our normal’. We will not get back to ‘normal’ if we ALL do not start taking this virus and its spread seriously. We must have empathy for others. The choices YOU make impacts others,” says Dr. Ted Waflart, Dubois County Health Officer. “Thank you to all who have been following and obeying the guidance and recommendations of preventing the spread of COVID-19. We need to continue to flatten the curve. We are not over this!”
