Cass County moves to red on state COVID-19 metrics map

Last Updated on January 20, 2021 by Cass County Online

Cass County has moved to red as of noon Wednesday, January 13, 2021 under the targeted restrictions for counties that have high levels of COVID-19.

The size of social gatherings is limited by the color metric of the county and local health departments are no longer allowed to grant permission for larger events.

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.

Among the requirements are:

Red: The county has very high positivity and community spread. When a county is in the Red metric, these requirements remain in effect until the metric has returned to Orange or lower for two weeks.

  • Social gatherings of any kind, indoor or outdoor, are limited to 25 people.
  • K-12 extracurricular and co-curricular activities may continue with attendance limited to participants, support personnel, and parents/guardians plus their minor children.

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.
