Mask Up Hoosiers

Mayor Vonderheide’s statement on the state-wide mask mandate:

“Governor Holcomb today announced a Mask Mandate for all Hoosiers beginning Monday, 7/27/2020, to address the escalating risks of COVID-19 across the State. I support the Governor’s action as it is the step that was under consideration here in Dubois County. Our County currently has the highest rate of COVID-19 per capita across the entire state. Memorial Hospital and Healthcare Center and Dubois County Health Department have expressed the need to support mandatory masks due to recent trends in metrics. Today, we also recorded two additional deaths attributed to COVID-19. By following the Governor’s Executive Order we can minimize risks in the future. Citizens of Jasper and Dubois County must be part of the solution as we wish to avoid another “stay-at-home” order or the ultimate consequence, loss of loved ones.”
