For the second time in eight days, Elkhart County has broken its record for new COVID-19 cases, leading health officials to issue a warning to the public about taking the virus more seriously.

Dr. Lydia Mertz, Elkhart County’s health officer, in a release Thursday said the public needs to take the virus more seriously.

“We need to change what we’ve been doing, and get back to the preventive measures we had been taking in August that caused our rate to come down then. We need to get vigilant, and get the number of new cases down right away,” Mertz said.

She has said that if the outbreak continues to get worse, health officials will have to consider reintroducing restrictions.
