Local death totals include 1,002 in Lake County, 296 in Porter County, 219 in LaPorte County, 53 in Jasper County and 35 in Newton County, statistics from ISDH and the Porter County Health Department showed.

ISDH did not update its tallies Sunday due to technical maintenance on the site.

All data was provisional and subject to change as more information is reported to the state.
