A total of 1,607 Hoosiers have been confirmed to have died of COVID-19, an increase of 11 over the previous day.

Another 144 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.

According to the ISDH, intensive care unit and ventilator capacity remain steady. More than 38 percent of ICU beds and more than 80 percent of ventilators were available as of 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’s at greater risk for severe illness, also are encouraged to get tested.

Testing locations can be found through the COVID-19 testing link at www.coronavirus.in.gov.
