All But 7 Counties In Blue On IDOH's Latest COVID-19 Map

All but seven of Indiana’s 92 counties are now in the “blue” on the state’s color-coded COVID-19 tracking map, including almost all counties in the WVPE listening area.

The blue category is the least serious of the state's four color categories, indicating low spread of the coronavirus. 

 

Marshall, St. Joseph, Starke and Kosciusko counties all maintained their blue status from last week. Pulaski, LaPorte, Elkhart and LaGrange counties all moved to the blue from the more serious “yellow” category, which indicates moderate spread of the coronavirus. 

 

The only WVPE listener county still in the yellow is Fulton County. 

 

Statewide, only seven counties are left in the yellow. That’s a 74 percent decrease from last week, and by far the most blue counties that have ever been on the state map.

 

According to the state's vaccine dashboard, 46.5% of eligible Hoosiers are fully vaccinated. That's a little over one percentage point higher than last week.
