Stay-at-Home Order Extended for Hoosiers
INDIANAPOLIS-Indiana's stay-at-home order is now extended until May 1st.
The "Times" reports Governor Holcomb is directing Hoosiers to continue staying at home to minimize the potential spread of COVID-19.
Holcomb signed paperwork Monday renewing the stay-at-home order through 10:59 p.m. central time May 1.
There was a glimer of positivity in the order. Holcomb
said because most Hoosiers have done such a good job isolating themselves since March 23, and following social distancing guidelines, Indiana hospitals are expected to have enough beds, ventilators and personal protective equipment to accommodate the anticipated number of coronavirus patients.
And now hospitals will be authorized to treat non-emergency medical conditions including cardiac issues, cancer, endoscopy and respiratory procedures, and pain relief.
Other medical facilities and clinical practices, including dentists, can reopen statewide on April 27, but attention will be on the supply of personal protective equipment.
