INDIANAPOLIS (FOX59) – Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb is set to provide an update at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday on COVID-19’s impact on the state.
He’ll be joined by other state officials, including Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, State Health Commissioner Kristina Box and Executive Director of the Indiana Housing and Community Development Agency Jacob Sipe.
Wednesday’s update is expected to be focused on housing as Prosperity Indiana and others call for the eviction moratorium to be extended.
Indiana is currently in Stage 4 of Gov. Holcomb’s “Back on Track Indiana” reopening plan. Stage 5 is projected to begin on July 4, which is the last stage of the plan and lifts most restrictions. Face covering will still be recommended during Stage 5 and Hoosiers will still be expected to practice social distancing.
The Indiana State Department of Health reported 281 new positive COVID-19 cases between June 17-23, and nine new deaths between June 9-22, bringing the statewide totals to 43,140 and 2,368 respectively.
