INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The counties that include Indiana and Ball State universities are listed as the highest-risk locations for coronavirus infections on the state health department’s updated county-by-county map. The agency on Wednesday also added 12 more confirmed or presumed coronavirus-related deaths to the state’s toll, raising it to 3,472, including confirmed and presumed coronavirus cases since mid-March. Monroe County, which includes the main Indiana University campus in Bloomington, and Delaware County, which includes Ball State in Muncie, are the only two listed with the health department’s orange rating for moderate to high coronavirus spread after seven counties had that rating last week.
