The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) on Monday announced that 561 new positive cases of COVID-19 have been diagnosed throughout the state of Indiana.

That brought the number of identified coronavirus cases throughout the state to 62,907 in total, since ISDH recorded Indiana's first positive case of coronavirus on March 6, 2020.

ISDH also reported three new COVID-19 deaths on Monday - bringing the total number of Hoosiers known to have died of COVID-19 to date to 2,709, since Indiana's first coronavirus death was recorded by ISDH on March 15.

So far, 707,791 Indiana residents have been tested for COVID-19, showing a statewide positivity rate of 8.9%.

As of Monday in Indiana, masks became mandatory under Governor Holcomb's Executive Order, which was issued due to an increase in the state's COVID-19 positivity rate, among other reasons.

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.
