Health Department Confirms Patient Didn’t Have Public Contact


According to Washington County Health Department Nurse Alicia Thompson, the epidemiology report is on for the confirmed case of Covid-19 in Washington County.

The WCHD earlier confirmed the person had a Scottsburg address but lived in Washington County and is currently a patient at Schneck Memorial Hospital in Seymour.

“After our investigation, it has been determined that our positive case has not been in contact with the public other than a few close family members and healthcare workers involved in the case,” said Thompson.

WCHD is working closely with the local and state officials as well as Scheck Memorial and Scott County Health Department to ensure that contacts of the patient are identified and monitored and that all infection control protocols are being followed.

Gov. Eric J. Holcomb issues a public health emergency declaration that calls on state agencies to continue their diligence and cooperation in responding to Covid-19 and ensures that Indiana can seek funding to control and stop the spread of Covid-19.
