Conditionally updating a table value in a table trigger

I have defined a trigger on a table which fires everytime a row is inserted.  When a row is inserted, I update a second table's 'status' column with the new row's status field as follows:

CREATE TRIGGER Status_insert_trigger
ON Status
AFTER INSERT
AS
UPDATE Customers
SET Status = i.status
FROM Customers
INNER JOIN Inserted i ON i.ID = Customers.ID

This is working fine.  I however have an additional requirement:  If the i.status value is 'Offline' then I would also like to update the Customers table 'Active' field to 'NO'.

How can I do this in my SQL code?

Thanks

Chris
