The Porter County Health Department has reported two additional positive COVID-19 cases within Porter County for a total of four positive cases. This is in addition to a second county case reported Tuesday afternoon.

The individuals are self-isolating at home in good condition and is being monitored twice a day by staff at the Porter County Health Department to closely monitor their condition for any deterioration.

The Health Department says it thoroughly investigates each case, tracking down not only close contacts but any contact by finding out where the individual was when symptoms started as well as who they were with.

Department staff has had extensive training in communicable disease investigation as well as ample resources provided by the state, a press release said today.

It is expected that additional positive cases will increase over the coming days as more and more tests are conducted, the department warns.
