Visitors to Indiana's COVID-19 dashboard Thursday would have noticed something new: a color-coded map that assesses key metrics regarding the coronavirus outbreak.

The state health department is assigning county scores based on the number of new cases per 100,000 residents and the percentage of tests confirming COVID-19 infections.

State health commissioner Dr. Kristina Box says the ratings are meant to help local schools and don't mandate any shift to virtual education. 

While data is provided by ISDH daily, the color-coded map will only be updated once each week -- on Wednesdays at noon.

It will reflect information in the health department's system through the previous Sunday.

The COVID-19 dashboard is available online here.
