One additional Dubois County resident has passed away from COVID-19, the Dubois County Health Department (DCHD) announced on Thursday, July 23.

That brought the total number of COVID-19 deaths in Dubois County to a 10 in total.

Thursday's report of one new COVID-19 death in the county comes just one day after the county health department reported two other COVID-19 deaths just one day earlier on Wednesday.

Another 17 new positive cases of COVID-19 were reported in Dubois County on Thursday, bringing the number of identified cases in Dubois County residents to date to 486 total, since the first case in the county was recorded on March 21.

Dubois County health officials have noted that the positive cases in the county continue to grow "at an alarming rate," now strongly urging the county's citizens to wear masks -  though Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb's statewide mask mandate is set to go into effect on Monday, July 27.

So far, 290 Dubois County residents have recovered from COVID-19.

DCHD says 4111 total Dubois County residents have been tested for COVID-19 so far, showing a positivity rate of 11.82% in the county.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
