This is causing concerning staff shortages in the hospital as well as our other healthcare offices. It is a real problem,” said Dr. Dan Nafziger, Goshen Hospital Chief Medical Officer and Infectious Disease Specialist. “Please reduce the nonessential time you are out in public – at work, school, church or shopping. We appreciate everything you do to protect yourself and your loved ones, as well as our healthcare professionals, from contracting the virus. Smaller gatherings at home with family and friends are also spreading the virus.”Below is COVID-19 activity for Goshen Health as of November 2, going back to March 11.Testing:19,360 tests completed2,632 positive test results (overall positivity rate of 13.8%)16,485 negative test results167 outstanding test resultsHospitalizations:393 hospital admissions361 hospital discharges42 confirmed COVID-19 positive related mortalities Google+ Previous articleJobs penned for northern Indiana despite pandemicNext articleBenton Township police searching for people involved in fatal crash Jon ZimneyJon Zimney is the News and Programming Director for News/Talk 95.3 Michiana’s News Channel and host of the Fries With That podcast.
