Two additional COVID-19 cases in Jefferson County

MT. VERNON, IL — Jefferson County Health Department has been notified of 2 additional positive cases of COVID-19 in Jefferson County residents. One is a male in his 40s and the other is a female in her 20s. Both of these cases are currently isolating in their homes.

Jefferson County Health Department has begun an investigation of this case, speaking with individuals who the patient may have encountered before this diagnosis. Through this investigation, the Health Department may place individuals on home quarantine if they are determined to have had significant exposure. Such individuals may not be symptomatic but will be quarantined for a period of time which allows symptoms to develop and pass without posing risk to others. If you are contacted by public health officials, please respond promptly.

Public Health officials expect more positive cases to be confirmed locally. The number of cases can be reduced by adhering to the stay at home order, washing hands frequently, disinfecting commonly touched surfaces, and maintaining space of at least six feet from others.

With the upcoming Easter holiday, it is imperative to remember you could be putting the people you care about at risk by having family gatherings or in-person church services. Please continue to practice good social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
