NCHD says the victim is a school bus driver and food director at West Noble School Corporation.

The health department and the Noble County Emergency Management Incident Command Center recommend everyone to follow Indiana Governor Holcomb’s Executive Order to self-isolate and watch for symptoms consistent with COVID-19.

A Steuben County resident and Wabash County resident were also confirmed Friday with having COVID-19.

These symptoms include: Fever more than 100 degrees F, cough, headache, muscle aches and shortness of breath.

The Noble County Health Department following recommends the following:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • When you are sick, stay home from work, school, or social engagements and respectfully ask others to do the same.
  • Perhaps eliminate handshaking or other personal contact as forms of greeting, as disease pathogens are commonly carried on hands.
    • Certainly, avoid kissing.
  • Masks are not usually recommended to prevent infection. The current coronavirus outbreak has caused a shortage of such masks in many areas. In most cases, wearing some type of surgical or dust mask will not really prevent infection.
  • If you become ill, contact your healthcare provider for advice rather than going to an office or urgent care center.
    • Be prepared to stay home until you have recovered and symptom-free for at least 72 hours or at least 7 days since symptoms started, whichever is longer.
    • You also need to be symptom/fever free for 72 hours without the use of any fever-reducing medication
  • However, if you are having trouble breathing, call 911 for assistance so healthcare providers can come to you wearing appropriate personal protective equipment.
