The new month already setting records as coronavirus cases spike.

Locally, Vanderburgh County and Green River District report 100 cases each on Monday.

This, as Election Day draws near and Americans head to the polls.

On Monday, the Tri-State reporting more than 400 new cases of COVID-19.

Health officials sounding the alarm on the dangerous possibility of the virus being spread over the next several days and the impact it could have this winter.

In Vanderburgh County, health officials asking voters to do as they've been preaching since the early start of the pandemic, to wear a mask and social distance.

They also encourage voters to use hand sanitizer after using the machines.

"We're concerned at anytime right now because we are seeing the community spread," says Lynn Herr, Vanderburgh County Health Department. "If you know you are a close contact or you are having any symptoms of COVID-19, we need you to stay home. If you're feeling well then go to the polls."

Health officials have been making their rounds to local polling locations like the Old National Events Plaza to ensure safety measures are in place.

Another concern for many states right now is dropping temperatures forcing people indoors.
