Ind. (WEHT) — The Indiana State Department of Health says they will now provide daily updates on coronavirus in the state.

Since March 6, ISDH has confirmed four presumptive positive cases of COVID-19. The patients are three adults and one juvenile who live in Marion, Hendricks and Noble counties.

According to ISDH, the Marion and Hendricks County patients are self-isolating and the Noble County patient is currently hospitalized.
