Another 5,708 Indiana residents have tested positive for COVID-19, the Indiana State Department of Health reported on Friday.

236,565 total Indiana residents have now tested positive for the COVID-19, out of the 1,893,070 residents of the state who have been tested for it. That means 12.49% of all individuals in the state that have been tested for the virus have received a positive test result.

Here are Friday's local COVID-19 increases by county:

  • Vanderburgh County: 149 new positive cases (7,930 total positive cases), 3 new deaths (98 total deaths)
  • Warrick County: 56 new positive cases (2,663 total)
  • Gibson County: 61 new positive cases (1,358 total), 1 new death (18 total deaths)

  • Dubois County: 26 new positive cases (2,000 total)
  • Spencer County: 21 new positive cases (638 total)
  • Perry County: 13 new positive cases (690 total)

With Gibson County's report of 61 new positive cases of the virus on Friday, the county saw its highest one-day increase of new positive cases so far.

Including those five new COVID-19 deaths reported throughout our southwest Indiana counties, ISDH said Friday that overall, 50 more Hoosiers had died from COVID-19. That brought the total number of COVID-19 deaths in the state to 4,613.

In an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19 throughout the state, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb says his new COVID-19 Executive Order, which will reduce gathering sizes and impose other new restrictions in counties classified as Orange and Red, will go into effect on Sunday, Nov. 15.
