Shelby Co. remains Orange on state's Covid map; only one Red, and now a Blue county

On the COVID map most of Indiana's counties are still in the orange and yellow, but Dr. Kristina Box, state health commissioner, said on Wednesday that Switzerland County is now the only county in Indiana that's red.


She said Indiana even has a county in blue now, Starke County.


Other area counties show Rush and Marion in yellow while Shelby and its other border counties – Decatur, Bartholomew, Hancock and Johnson remain orange.


One month ago, 73 of Indiana's 92 counties were in the red.
