City Reports Three New COVID-19 Cases in Past Week

Bloomington, Ind. - Three City workers have reported positive results of COVID-19 laboratory tests since the November 24 update. None of the cases being reported today are linked to previous cases at the City, and no close contacts were subsequently identified among these employees’ co-workers or the general public. Details of each case are as follows: 

 

  • A City of Bloomington Utilities (CBU) employee, who was not symptomatic, received a positive COVID-19 test result on Wednesday, November 24. 

  • A Bloomington Police Department (BPD) employee began experiencing symptoms on Saturday, November 27, receiving a positive result on Sunday, November 28.    

  • A Bloomington Transit (BT) employee began experiencing symptoms on Monday, November 29, receiving a positive result on Wednesday, December 1. 

 

“Close contact” is defined by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as someone who was within six feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes starting from two days before illness onset--or, for asymptomatic clients, two days prior to positive specimen collection--until the time the patient is isolated. 

 

127 positive COVID-19 viral test results have been reported since the start of the pandemic by City workers, including those employed by the municipal corporations that operate the water utility (CBU), transit system (BT), and public housing (Bloomington Housing Authority). Additionally, COVID-19 was listed among the causes of death of one City worker.  

 

Data about COVID-19 cases among City employees, in the county, the state and the nation are presented at this online dashboard. Other City-related updates about the COVID-19 pandemic are assembled here.  

 

The City of Bloomington is committed to sharing information about how its operations and workforce are affected by this public health emergency, and will continue to provide weekly updates about confirmed cases among staff while protecting employees’ privacy.
