Here's the official announcement from GRDHD:

On Saturday, April 4, 2020, the Green River District Health Department reported 12 additional confirmed COVID-19 cases. Daviess County reported 3 new confirmed cases of COVID-19. Henderson County reported 4 additional confirmed cases of COVID-19. McLean County reported 2 new confirmed cases. Ohio County reported 3 new confirmed cases. It was determined during the contact investigation on Friday a case that had been reported in Union County on April 3rd was actually a Henderson County resident. The totals reported today for each county reflect that correction. “In the days and weeks ahead we expect to see more new cases,” said Clay Horton, Public Health Director. “We all play a part in this effort and it is crucial we do everything we can. Stay home, avoid crowds and practice physical social distancing – staying at least 6 feet away from others. The lab-confirmed cases are only a portion of what is in the community. People must continue to be vigilant in helping stop the spread of COVID19. ” The total number of cases reported in the district is now 90. Three additional previously confirmed cases are now reported as recovered. The total recovered cases in the district are now 20, 18 in Daviess County and 2 in Henderson County.
