Several southwestern Indiana counties have moved up an advisory level for COVID-19.

Gibson, Warrick, Perry, and Crawford counties are now in the orange metric.

This means that there is medium to high community spread. The state health commissioner will work with local health and elected officials to consider additional actions.

Actions may include:

  • Restrictions on the size of social gatherings
  • Restricting common areas in workplaces
  • Additional local monitoring of social distancing requirements at all events and venues
  • Placing attendance restrictions on K-12 extracurricular activities and sports events. Participants should only meet if they are able to socially distance and wear face coverings.

Knox, Pike, Dubois, Posey, Vanderburgh, Lawrence, and Spencer counties are currently in the yellow.

This means that there is a moderate community spread of the virus. Local officials should be aware of the increased community spread and consider additional actions, such as:

  • Hold regular meetings of county health and other elected officials, health providers, school leaders, and other key stakeholders regularly to discuss conditions.
  • Consider restrictions on the size of gatherings
  • Restrict common areas in the workplaces
  • School officials should review the plans for face coverings and social distancing for all school extracurricular activities and assemblies.

Daviess, Martin, and Orange counties are still in the blue metric.

This means that there is minimal community spread and current activities may continue.
