As of Wednesday at noon, Marshall County is Orange on both the advisory level and the county metric system. It has a score of 3 in the Weekly Cases per 100,000 which results in it being Red. The 7-Day All Tests Positivity Rate is 10.33% which results in an Orange rating. Both of these factors show an increase compared to prior weeks.
