The Indiana State Department of Health reported 4,028 new positive cases of COVID-19 throughout the Hoosier State on Tuesday.

With Tuesday's reported increase of new positive cases, 500,282 total Indiana residents are now confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19 to date, since the first case was reported in the state on March 6, 2020.

In addition to those new positive cases, ISDH also reported 164 new COVID-19 deaths Tuesday, meaning 7,703 total Hoosiers are now confirmed to have died from COVID-19, according to the state health department.

Locally, 281 new positive cases and 7 new deaths were reported collectively in our southwestern Tri-State counties. Each county's individual increases can be seen below.

At this time, Dubois County remains the only local Indiana county in the state's COVID-19 Red Status, which under Gov. Holcomb's latest Executive Order, requires the most stringent restrictions on gatherings and events in the county.

The state health department's COVID-19 County Metrics Map, which based on community spread categorizes each county in the state as Blue, Yellow, Orange, or Red, is updated each Wednesday.
