INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana State Department of Health on Monday announced that 354 additional Hoosiers have been diagnosed with COVID-19, bringing the state total to 31,715.

Six new cases were reported in Vigo County for a total of 147 cases since the beginning of the pandemic.

A total of 1,832 Hoosiers are confirmed to have died from COVID-19, an increase of 8 over the previous day.

Another 152 probable deaths have been reported based on clinical diagnoses in patients for whom no positive test is on record, following a correction to the previous day’s total.

To date, 226,251 tests have been reported to ISDH, up from 220,801 on Sunday.                        

Hoosiers who have symptoms of COVID-19 and those who have been exposed and need a test to return to work are encouraged to visit a state-sponsored testing site for free testing.

Individuals without symptoms who are at high risk because they are over age 65, have diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure or another underlying condition, as well as those who are pregnant, live with a high-risk individual or are a member of a minority population that is at greater risk for severe illness, also are encouraged to get tested.
