State eases some restrictions State eases some restrictions

Gov. Eric Holcomb announced today (April 20) some easing of restrictions to the state’s revised “stay-at-home” order, which is now officially extended until Friday, May 1.

Starting Tuesday, some non-emergency procedures can resume in hospitals. Those include screening, diagnosing and treating cardiac issues and cancer.

The governor said future restrictions will be re-evaluated every seven days.
Holcomb said Hoosiers are taking the state’s executive orders seriously and are helping their neighbors, which is why the easing of some of these restrictions is underway. He added data will determine the next steps the state takes.
As of today, 11,686 Hoosiers have tested positive with COVID-19 and 569 individuals have died from the virus.
