How does contact tracing work? Where can I get a COVID-19 test? What happens if a restaurant employee is diagnosed with COVID-19? Do masks really help stop the spread?

The Putnam County Health Departmentís goal is to keep the community informed and educated with factual COVID-19 guidance and updates. The information and guidelines concerning the fight against the virus can change daily -- sometimes hourly -- and the departmentís focus since the pandemic began has been to help the community find the most current answers to questions and concerns to help stop the spread and reduce COVID-19-related deaths in Putnam County.

To learn the most up-to-date information, Public Health Nurse Sara Burnett will be the featured speaker at the upcoming Community Conversation on Tuesday, Sept. 15 at 7 p.m.

This meeting will be held over Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86187606860.

Burnett has been a registered nurse (RN) for 12 years and has worked for the Putnam County Health Department for five years. She grew up in Putnam County and attended South Putnam High School. Burnett was a board member for the Indiana Immunization Coalition, and was recognized by the State of Indiana for her work in the treatment and prevention of tuberculosis (TB) in Putnam County.

The Community Conversation Series is sponsored by the Greencastle League of Women Voters, the Putnam County Public Library and the Greater Greencastle Chamber of Commerce.

The goal of this continuing program is to provide the community an opportunity to hear from and speak to their elected and appointed government officials.
