INDIANAPOLIS (WPTA21) - Much of Indiana has returned to the "red," indicating widespread transmission of the coronavirus.

State Health officials have marked 77 out of the state's 92 counties in the highest risk for community spread of COVID-19.

Each week, the Indiana State Department of Health gives a color-coded score to each county based on positivity rates and new cases per 100,000 people.

Counties in the "red" are under the most strict restrictions to curb the spread under Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb's executive order.

As predicted by the Allen County Health Commissioner, Allen County has gone back red.

Much of northeast Indiana is in the "red" as well.

Here are the restrictions for each color-coded county:
