AUBURN — After weeks of recording over 100 new cases of COVID-19, the county has dropped below 100 new cases, a place it hasn’t been since the second week of August when 95 cases were reported.

The DeKalb County Health Department reported 91 new cases of COVID-19 in this week’s report, bringing the county’s total to 6,387 residents since the start of the pandemic in March 2020.

The county didn’t report any new deaths this week and is sitting at 86.

The county continues to see a large number of cases in those 50 and younger, with the 21-30 age group recording 24 cases this week.

Cases among school-aged children continue to be low each day with 17 cases being reported in youth 0-20 years-old.

The county will be hosting an Indiana State Department of Health mobile COVID vaccine and testing clinic at the DeKalb County Fairgrounds from noon to 8 p.m. on Oct. 27 and Nov. 17. This clinic has Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer vaccines.

Appointments for the clinic can be made by visiting ourshot.in.gov or by calling 211. Walk-ins will also be welcome. Testing will also be available at these times.
