01 May Governor Announces Roadmap for Re-Opening Indiana
Today during his daily press conference, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb announced his plans for a gradual re-opening of every sector of the state. Governor Holcomb had initially announced a Stay at Home order on March 16, and the order was extended several times until today, May 1. The Stay at Home order is officially ending on Monday, May 4.
The governor unveiled the state’s “Back on Track” plan, which outlines stages of opening various aspects of public life, events and companies throughout the state. For full details of the plan, download the Roadmap to Safely Reopen Indiana PDF, or visit backontrack.in.gov.
Note that the governor’s plan, as well as some local ordinances, delay some of the re-opening plans for Marion, Cass and Lake Counties. However, these plans do not include restrictions on seeking routine medical or dental care, so patients are still allowed to travel for essential services, which includes dental and medical appointments in these counties.
