Please consider changing your Formula to the following:

<td width=104 colspan=2 valign=top style='width:78.0pt;border-top:none;border-left:none;border-bottom:solid;background:" & 
Switch(Status.Value, "Good", "#00B050", "Moderate", "yellow", "Bad", "red") & 
";border-right:solid;padding:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt'>
<p class=MsoNormal>" & Status.Value & "<o:p></o:p></p></td>

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

How are you building your rows?  The Html you sent before only dealt with the specific section with the color.
