You can read the Health Department's full statement below.
12 new cases of COVID-19 were reported in this afternoon’s update.
1 new death was also reported. Our death toll stands at 82.
Our seven-day positivity rate is 9.6%, that’s down from yesterday’s 10.9%.
FROM THE DUBOIS COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT:
The Indiana State Department of Health has moved Dubois County’s weekly score to “Orange” today. However, the county still remains in the “RED” advisory level requirements.
On November 13, 2020, Governor Eric Holcomb issued Executive Order 20-48 that introduced county level measures and restrictions based on each county’s color. Whenever a county’s metric/score
rises to a higher color category, that county is moved to a more restrictive advisory level. When a county
meets the metric/score of a less restrictive color category, it must remain in the less restrictive color for
two consecutive weeks to be allowed to move down to the lower advisory level.
For this reason, a county’s advisory level can be different than its current weekly score. You can see each of these maps on the IDOH dashboard by selecting “Advisory Level” or “Weekly Score” from the map filter dropdown box.
