On Wednesday, Feb. 24, the Indiana State Department of Health provided an update to its COVID-19 County Metrics Map, which showed several counties around the state now in the Blue Advisory Level.

The Blue Advisory Level, which indicates the lowest rate of COVID-19 spread, was granted to nine Indiana counties on Wednesday - including Daviess County, in the southwest region of the state.

Under Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb's Executive Order on gatherings and events in the state, counties in the Blue Advisory Level may have gatherings and events at 100% of a facility's capacity. Yellow Advisory Level counties may have gatherings at 50% capacity, with Orange and Red counties able to have gatherings at 25% capacity.

While Daviess County was the only local county to enter the Blue Advisory Level on Wednesday, nearly all local counties received a Weekly Score of Blue, except for Posey, Vanderburgh, Warrick, and Spencer counties, as seen below:

For a county to improve to the next Advisory Level, it must maintain a lower Weekly Score than its current Advisory Level for two consecutive weeks. Counties may only improve by one Advisory Level at a time.

It was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon throughout the Tri-State, but despite our seemingly endless supply of sunshine today, temperatures remained more than 10° cooler than the norm for this time of the year. Fortunately, today's peak temperature of 65° represents our coolest anticipated afternoon high temperature through the remainder of our extended forecast. While it is indeed encouraging that temperatures will gradually rise through the rest of the work week into the weekend ahead, we'll still have to deal with temperatures back down into the upper 30s and low 40s early Thursday morning.
