Last Updated on January 29, 2021 by Cass County Online

Cass County has returned to orange as of noon Wednesday, January 20, 2021 under the targeted restrictions for counties that have high levels of COVID-19.

Cass County was in red for the week of January 13-19, 2021. When a county is in the red metric, the red requirements remain in effect until the metric has returned to orange or lower for two weeks.

The color-coded map measures weekly cases per 100,000 residents and the 7-day positivity rate for all tests completed. Restrictions are based on the map, which is updated each Wednesday at coronavirus.in.gov.

An in-depth description of the requirements for all Hoosiers and targeted restrictions for counties can be found here.

Regardless of a county’s color code, community recreational sports leagues and tournaments may continue but are limited to participants, support personnel, and parents/guardians and their minor children.

Face coverings are required for all Hoosiers. Businesses of all types are required to place clearly visible signs at their public and employee entrances notifying all that face coverings are required.

All customers in restaurants and bars are required to be seated. Tables, counters, or other seating arrangements must be spaced six feet apart.
