The Alabama Department of Public Health has classified all 10 North Alabama counties as "Very High Risk" for coronavirus, according to new data released Thursday.

In total, 59 of Alabama's 67 counties are now classified as "Very High Risk" for transmission of the virus.

The 10 counties that make up North Alabama are: Colbert, DeKalb, Franklin, Jackson, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison, Marshall and Morgan.

In data released July 15, Colbert and Jackson counties were the only North Alabama counties not ranked as "Very High Risk." Colbert County was ranked as "Moderate Risk"  and Jackon County was at "Low Risk."

Also last week, 47 of the state's 67 counties were classified as "Very High Risk,"
