County commission hears COVID-19 update

St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners was briefed Tuesday on the COVID-19 virus and its impact on the county.

During their twice-a-month meeting, commissioners heard the update from Erin Goff, Emergency Management Services director for St. Joseph County.

Goff said through Tuesday, three days had passed since the county had seen any additional cases and she remains cautiously optimistic.

She said the United Way of St. Joseph County continues to spearhead food and volunteers. Aid is provided through drive-thru food-distribution events two to three times weekly as well as food bank deliveries through the end of April.

The United Way reports approximately 1,300 food boxes are being distributed weekly.

In other news, county administrator Teresa Doehring said she continues to work closely with leadership staff at the courthouse. She said she is satisfied staff is doing a good job working as diligently as possible and looking out for one another.

  1. What a bogus incomplete report. Testing is not available for most sick people. They are told to stay home and only get tested when they are so ill they need hospitalization. How long will our officials ignore that fact in their reports and press releases? Why do we let them ?
