Elkhart County moves to orange status on Indiana’s COVID-19 map

There’s good news on the local front about the coronavirus…but it’s cautious optimism.

During Indiana’s weekly COVID-19 update on Wednesday, State Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box announced that there were fewer counties in the state in the red category.

One of those counties that has moved down to orange is Elkhart County, indicating a less widespread case load in the county. Dr. Box warned, however, that the state still hasn’t seen the impacts of potential infections from people who chose to travel for Thanksgiving, despite advice from the CDC.

She also said Indiana is changing the state’s contact tracing system due to the amount of cases being processed, and hopes to bring a new testing lab online soon.
