Six new cases Monday; 12 in the last week

The recent spike in COVID-19 cases continues in Adams County, as six new cases have now been reported.

That's according to the Adams County Health Department, which released a statement Monday afternoon. The total number of cases in Adams County is now at 56. The Health Department says that contact tracing investigations are being conducted to follow up with close contacts of those infected. The Department will advise them of their potential exposure and steps they will need to take to monitor their health as well as any quarantine instructions. The past week has seen 12 new cases of the virus, and according to Adams County Health Department Administrator Jerrod Welch, if you don't feel well at all, don't ignore it.

The statement says that if anyone feels any symptoms, to call the Blessing Health System COVID-19 Hotline as soon as possible and talk with a registered nurse. Welch says that as Quincy and Adams County re-opens as a part of Phase 4, he expects more spikes. Welch wants people to continue social distancing, and to wear masks.

Welch adds that wearing a mask is a sign of respect for others, especially retail and other workers who are required to do so.
