Monroe County returns to yellow COVID-19 advisory levels Wednesday


Monroe County returned to the yellow advisory level on the Indiana State Department of Health’s COVID-19 dashboard on Wednesday, meaning there are more than 10 weekly cases per 100,000 residents. 

The county had 29 new positive cases Tuesday but no additional deaths, according to the dashboard.

Indiana has four COVID-19 advisory levels with blue being the lowest and red being the highest. 

A blue advisory is for counties with minimal community spread of the coronavirus, meaning current activities can continue. 

A yellow advisory indicates moderate spread of the virus and local health officials are advised to consider restrictions on sizes of gatherings, restrictions on common areas in workplaces and reviewing plans for face coverings and social distancing for school extracurricular activities and assemblies.
