And yet Elkhart County has not released one detail regarding where these people work? Or maybe where they've been in the last couple of weeks? Every other county does that. Don't people have a right to know of potential exposure?


I don’t think they are testing many in Elkhart county. They have refused tests to people with symptoms


Treat it as if you are infected, EVERYONE you meet is infected and EVERYTHING outside your home that you touch is infected. That will help reduce your risk of catching and spreading the virus. It would be nice to know where the positive folks were, but you really have to assume the is everywhere.


This should be a surprise to nobody. Buckle up folks!
