DeWitt County Board Chair David Newberg is reassuring the community County leadership is on high alert and meeting multiple times throughout the week to stay on top of the ever-developing and changing coronavirus outbreak.
Newberg told Regional Radio News Friday on the WHOW Morning Show the county has fantastic leadership and everyone is working together and at the ready for anything this outbreak could bring our way.
The DeWitt County Board canceled their Thursday night meeting because of state and federal recommendations to not have gatherings of more than 10 people and Newberg says the status of future meetings is up in the air because of the fluidity of this situation.
The DeWitt County Board's finance committee met earlier in the week and according to Newberg, they took care of as much business to make sure the County was going to get by.
As of Friday at noon, there were no positive tests for coronavirus in DeWitt County.
