Dubois County Health Officer, Dr. Ted Waflart said on Wednesday that the health department is overwhelmed with calls based on false rumors.
Waflart says avoid getting news from unreliable sources and do not spread unfounded rumors.
Reliable sources for COVID-19 information include the CDC at https://www.cdc.gov/, the Indiana State Department of Health at https://www.in.gov/isdh/ and the Dubois County Health Department at https://www.duboiscountyin.org/departments/health_department/index.php.
Waflart says spreading misinformation helps no one and adds to the anxiety and unrest of our community.
The health department continues to advise that staying home is critical to reducing the spread of COVID-19 in the community.
