On Thursday, state health officials in Indiana said 1,109 new positive cases of COVID-19 had been identified in Hoosiers.

That brought the number of Indiana residents now known to have tested positive for COVID-19 to date to 659,127 total, according to the Indiana State Department of Health.

26 new COVID-19 deaths were also confirmed by ISDH statewide on Thursday. So far, 12,065 total Indiana residents have died from COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic.


Updated statewide numbers reported by ISDH Thursday

While 26 new COVID-19 deaths were reported statewide Thursday, no new COVID-19 deaths were reported locally. Be that as it may, the state health department said 78 new positive cases of the virus had been identified in Indiana's southwest region.

Local COVID-19 Case Increases Reported by ISDH Thursday:

  • Vanderburgh County: 26 new cases
  • Warrick County: 9 new cases
  • Spencer County: 5 new cases
  • Posey County: 1 new case
  • Pike County: 2 new cases
  • Perry County: 4 new cases
  • Gibson County: 7 new cases
  • Knox County: 13 new cases
  • Daviess County: 2 new cases
  • Dubois County: 9 new cases

With reportedly-low daily increases of new positive COVID-19 cases locally, many local counties are being scored as "Blue," indicating the lowest rate of COVID-19 spread. 

While most local counties remain in the "Yellow" Advisory Level, allowing gatherings and events to occur at 50% capacity, Daviess County was able to enter into the Blue Advisory Level on Wednesday, allowing gatherings and events to occur at 100%.

Although the state has been making steady progress for weeks, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb says we can't let our guards down yet - which is why the governor says he's extending his Executive Order on event and gathering sizes for an additional 30 days.
