INDIANAPOLIS (FOX59) — Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb and health officials are set to discuss the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on Indiana.
Wednesday’s briefing comes as retail businesses must now operate like bars and restaurants, meaning only curbside, carryout and online order/delivery can be offered. This does not apply to grocery stores and pharmacies.
Retail stores that provide essential items must limit the number of customers in the store at a time, adjust hours to accommodate vulnerable groups and limit hours for cleaning and restocking.
On Tuesday, The Indiana State Department of Health reported 34 new COVID-19 deaths and 185 more COVID-19 cases, bringing the state’s total to 173 deaths and 5,507 cases.
A statistical model developed to track COVID-19 cases across the U.S. and in individual states showed a slightly earlier peak in Indiana and a larger number of projected deaths.
