Indiana to work with neighboring states on ‘re-opening’
Gov. Eric Holcomb said Wednesday (April 15) that Indiana will work with neighboring state leaders, including in Kentucky, to collectively work together to re-open businesses, when the time comes.
The governor said during the update that re-opening will be done gradually and decisions will be made based on data.
More data is expected to be released in the coming days, providing information about the number of people who have recovered from the coronavirus.
It was announced that Indiana had 49 additional deaths, bringing the state total to 436. Indiana now has 8,955 people testing positive for COVID-19, with 48,396 Hoosiers getting tested.
Hoosiers seeking food assistance are being encouraged to ask food pantries or food banks about pre-packaged 25-pound boxes of food now available through the Disaster Household Distribution program approved by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service. This program is now available in the state and remains in effect until May 14. Priority will be given to Hoosiers who are suffering significant economic losses.
Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson is expected to provide updates on Thursday (April 16) regarding Indiana’s primary election, which has already been postponed to June 2.
