The Indiana State Department of Health reported 1,195 new positive cases of COVID-19 throughout the Hoosier State on Friday - the state's fifth-highest single-day increase in new COVID-19 cases to date.

That brought the total number of Indiana residents known to have tested positive for COVID-19 so far to 115,407.

Vanderburgh County on Friday also saw its highest one-day increase in new positive cases so far, with 73 new positive cases of COVID-19 being confirmed in the county. 3,609 of the county's residents have now tested positive for COVID-19 to date.

According to ISDH, 3,340 total Indiana residents have died from COVID-19 so far. That's after 18 new COVID-19 deaths were recorded throughout the state on Friday.

Indiana is scheduled to move into Stage 5 of Gov. Holcomb's reopening plan on Saturday, which removes size limitations on gatherings and meetings and allows a number of different establishments to operate at full capacity.

Holcomb said Thursday that his statewide mask mandate had been extended until at least Oct. 17 - the current end date of Stage 5 of Indiana's reopening.

The state's public health emergency declaration for the COVID-19 pandemic was also renewed by Holcomb on Thursday.

More information on COVID-19 in Indiana can be found on ISDH's COVID-19 dashboard, which is updated daily.
