With 34 new cases over a three-day period, Putnam County has now had 507 cases of COVID-19 since March.

According to the Indiana State Department of Health, the county reported 17 new cases on Friday, 12 more on Saturday and five on Sunday.

Of these new cases, 12 apparently came from Putnamville Correctional Facility, as the prison increased its numbers from 185 to 197 over the same three-day period.

Of Putnamville’s 197 confirmed cases, 180 have recovered.

DePauw University also reported one new positive case on Monday, bringing its total to eight since students returned to class late last month.
