According to the Indiana State Department of Health's COVID-19 County Metrics dashboard, Vanderburgh County is currently in the "Orange" status.

Counties on the color-coded map can range between four different colors, with Blue being the lowest status, scaling up through Yellow, Orange, and then finally, Red.

ISDH says the colored map is used to better track the change in COVID-19 community spread week-over-week and assigns each county a color based on the number of weekly cases per 100,000 residents, as well as the county's seven-day positivity rate.

For a county to be in Orange status, it must either have a 7-day positivity rate between 10% and 14.9% or a number of weekly new cases of 100 to 199 per 100,000 residents.

Vanderburgh County currently sits at a 7-day positivity rate of 9.44%, with 326 new positive cases weekly per 100,000 residents.

Vanderburgh County is one of four Indiana counties currently in the state's Orange status, alongside Warrick County, Spencer County, and Brown County.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
