UPDATE: About 10 a.m. on Sunday, News 10 received an ISDH news release from the Joint Information Center. The JIC sends at least one update per day on the COVID-19 situation in Indiana. This is where we learn of any deaths caused by or additional cases of COVID-19 in the state. Sunday’s news release contained information regarding Saturday’s reported positive COVID-19 test result from Greene County:

“The dashboard has also been updated to remove a negative case that was incorrectly reported to ISDH as positive from Greene County…”

We immediately wanted to confirm this information to ensure its accuracy. News 10 reached out to a number of sources. We left a voicemail with the Greene County Health Department. We called and spoke with personnel at Greene County General Hospital. We also reached out to the ISDH and the Joint Information System both by phone and by email. It was through email the Joint Information Center confirmed the test from Greene County was, in fact, negative: “The information in this morning’s update is correct. The case that was previously reported as positive in Greene County is in fact negative.”

News 10’s Tilly Marlatt reached out to Stacy Burris of Greene County General Hospital. Burris told News 10 she’s not aware of any positive cases that GCGH has tested. News 10 has also reached out to Greta Sanderson, a communications specialist with ISDH.
