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)
  • Posey County: 13 new positive cases (1,005 total)
  • Knox County: 32 new positive cases (1,331 total), 1 new death (13 total deaths)
  • Pike County: 5 new positive cases (438 total)
  • Daviess County: 10 new positive cases (1,193 total)
  • 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.

We're going to be looking out for another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs should peak in the mid to high 90s with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 105°. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. By that time there is a good potential of some rainfall and storms picking up across the Tri-State. There is a chance we could see some severe weather develop with these storms. We'll start to see relief return Friday afternoon into Saturday.
