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.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another unseasonably warm day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Some areas could even see temperatures well into the 70s. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning. We won't see any rain from this front, but it will cool temperatures into the low 40s by Saturday morning.
