Change to COVID Orange Status Creates Confusion

(La Porte County, IN) - The Indiana State Department of Health’s color coded system has caused some confusion locally, even among local officials.


Like many other counties across Indiana, La Porte County did merit a change from “Red” to “Orange” status with its improved coronavirus statistics, this change is only provisional.


According to state guidelines, a county must post lower COVID-19 numbers for two straight weeks before officially moving to a new designation.  As a result, La Porte’s “Orange” status is still advisory only, which is why some local restrictions and policies have yet to be modified.
