COVID cases are on the rise again in Indiana, and locally.

With less than a week to go before Indiana’s statewide mask mandate ends, an additional 12 counties are reporting a jump in the numbers.

The South Bend Tribune reports more than 1,200 active cases in St. Joseph County, the first time that’s been reported since the end of January. That’s nearly 300 more cases than just two weeks ago.

St. Joseph County’s mask mandate has been extended to May 27.
