Kosciusko County Drops to “Yellow”

Improving numbers on the COVID front have allowed Kosciusko County, along with some neighboring counties, to improve one more advisory level.

In the latest update of county metrics by the Indiana Department of Health on Wednesday, Kosciusko County, along with St. Joseph County were moved into the yellow advisory, the second best rating a county can have.
