On Wednesday, the Indiana State Department of Health provided an update to its COVID-19 County Metrics Map.

Wednesday's update to the map shows Posey County and Dubois County now in the Blue COVID-19 Advisory Level, allowing events and gatherings to occur at 100% capacity.

One week earlier on Wednesday, March 10, ISDH said that Vanderburgh County had entered into the Blue Advisory Level, with Pike, Daviess, Knox, and Perry counties already there.

With Posey and Dubois counties entering into the Blue Advisory Level on March 17, the only counties in the 44News viewing area that remain in the Yellow Advisory Level are Gibson, Warrick, and Spencer counties.

While Blue counties can hold events and gatherings at 100% capacity, Yellow counties may hold gatherings and events at 50% capacity, with gatherings in Orange and Red counties restricted to 25% capacity.

Here are the Advisory Levels for March 10 compared to the updated Advisory Levels for March 17:

We're still waiting on the actual cold front to get here. That should arrive around dawn, bringing mainly light rain. The front may also be responsible for perking up a couple bands of heavier rain and lightning east of Evansville for midday Saturday.
