ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. (WNDU) - Elkhart County will join the rest of the state and move to Stage 4.5 of reopening tomorrow.

That's according to a statement sent out by Elkhart County Health Officer Dr. Lydia Mertz.

In the statement Dr. Mertz says, "This was possible because of decreasing positivity rates over the past week. I applaud all the citizens who worked together to wear masks in public, distance themselves, use hand hygiene, and stay home when sick."

She also notes that the positivity rates dropped from 13.7% to 8.4%.
