Upswing in COVID-19 cases could lead to more restrictions in St. Joseph County

This undated electron microscope image made available by the U.S. National Institutes of Health in February 2020 shows the Novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Also known as 2019-nCoV, the virus causes COVID-19. The sample was isolated from a patient in the U.S. (NIAID-RML)

Health leaders in St. Joseph County are considering taking new steps to stop the spread of coronavirus because they are seeing a growing number of people end up in the hospital with the virus.

St. Joseph County Health Officer Dr. Robert Einterz tells the South Bend Tribune they could move “back a stage or two” in the state’s reopening plan.

Einterz also says health department inspectors have visited bars and found “individuals packed shoulder to shoulder and not wearing masks and in violation of the governor’s orders.”

New guidelines could be released as early as Tuesday, Oct. 6.
