FROM LOCAL SOURCES
JASPER -- Dubois County’s weekly metrics have fallen to CODE ORANGE levels, but the Health Department says our Advisory Level remains at RED. That means the CODE RED restrictions will stay in place for now.
Spencer, Warrick, Pike, Daviess and Crawford counties are also under CODE RED.
Martin, Orange and Perry counties are at CODE ORANGE.
Local health officials explain, 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.
