On Wednesday, the Indiana State Department of Health updated its COVID-19 County Metrics Map, which showed Knox and Daviess counties in the Yellow Advisory Level.

Under Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb's latest executive order on event and gathering sizes, Yellow counties may have gatherings and events with a number of attendees equal to 50% of a facility's capacity.

As of Wednesday's update from ISDH, Gibson County was the only county to remain in the Red - meaning events and gatherings there may occur at 25% of a facility's capacity.

All other southwest counties in the area, including Vanderburgh, Posey, Warrick, Spencer, Perry, Pike, and Dubois counties, remain in the Orange, which holds the same restrictions as Red counties, allowing gatherings and events at 25% of a facility's capacity.
