    Area residents who attended the Sweetwater All-Stars concert, or patronized The Wet Spot bar that same day, are advised to self-quarantine and get tested for the COVID-19 virus as soon as possible.
    On Wednesday the Adams County Health Department announced on social media at least 13 individuals who attended the July 30 concert and visited The Wet Spot have tested positive for COVID-19.
    Adams County Health Officer Dr. Michael Ainsworth advised residents who attended either event and are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms to contact his or her family physician or visit one of the state testing sites. Registration for testing at an ISHD/Optum site is required and can be completed at https://lhi.care/covidtesting or by phone at 888-634-1116. Hoosiers will not be charged for testing, and insurance is not required. Those with private health insurance are asked to bring that information to the appointment.
    As of Wednesday afternoon, 2,189 Adams County residents have been tested for COVID-19, with 117 positive results and two deaths. There were seven new positive test results Monday, and eight new cases reported Tuesday, giving Adams County a positivity rate of 11.6%.
