31 new COVID-19 deaths were identified throughout Indiana on Tuesday, according to the Indiana State Department of Health.

ISDH says that now, 12,192 total Hoosiers are confirmed to have died from COVID-19 to date.

With another 582 new positive cases of COVID-19 also identified by ISDH Tuesday, 662,750 total Indiana residents have now tested positive for the virus so far.

According to the state health department's Tuesday update, new positive cases of COVID-19 remained relatively low locally, though one new COVID-19 death occurred in Vanderburgh County.

Local COVID-19 Increases:

  • Vanderburgh County: 15 new cases, 1 new death
  • Warrick County: 6 new cases
  • Posey County: 3 new cases
  • Gibson County: 1 new case
  • Knox County: 1 new case
  • Daviess County: 1 new case
  • Dubois County: 6 new cases
  • Pike County: 2 new cases
  • Perry County: 0 new cases
  • Posey County: 3 new cases
  • Spencer County: 7 new cases

While new COVID-19 cases both local and statewide remain low, state officials remained concerned by the steady number of new COVID-19 deaths. That's why Gov. Holcomb recently extended his Executive Order on county-based gathering restrictions.

As of Tuesday, ISDH said all Hoosiers age 55-years-old and above were eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
