COVID-19 DATA REPORT

Results as of November 23, 2021

Union County - COVID-19 Positive Cases 1154 - Deaths 16 - Metrics ORANGE 11/22/2021

Union County Health Department is working closely with local and state health officials to ensure that contacts of the patient are identified and monitored so that all infection control protocols are being followed. No additional information about the patient will be released due to privacy laws.

Human coronaviruses most commonly spread from an infected person to others through:

  • Respiratory droplets released into the air by coughing and sneezing;
  • Close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands;

The best way to protect yourself from any respiratory illness, including the flu, is to:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Maintaining 6-feet social distancing remains important to slowing the spread of the virus.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

The Indiana State Dept of Health (ISDH) will provide updates as new information becomes available. Visit the ISDH website at https://coronavirus.in.gov for the most up-to-date information on COVID_19 in Indiana.
