The Bureau County Emergency Management Agency has announced that County Board Chair Marshann Entwhistle has issued an emergency declaration relating to the spread of the coronavirus. This move activates Bureau County’s emergency operation plan, which, among other things, makes it possible for the county to enact more measures and resources to minimize the spread of the illness.
Bureau County asks the public to follow and share legitimate sources of information on the spread of COVID-19. You can also download the Ready Bureau app, which will give you more information on the illness.
As of Tuesday night, Bureau County had not registered any cases of the coronavirus.
