INDIANAPOLIS (WTWO/WAWV) — State Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box and ISDH Chief Medical Officer Dr. Lindsay Weaver will lead Wednesday’s weekly COVID briefing.
Gov. Eric Holcomb, who is currently under a precautionary quarantine, will join via phone.
Others expected to speak include:
- Eric D. Fish, MD, MBA, CEO of Schneck Medical Center in Seymour
- Sarah Paturalski, RN, Vice President of Nursing and Clinical Services at Memorial Hospital in South Bend
- Mark Luetkemeyer, MD, Chief Medical Officer, IU Health Methodist and University Hospitals in Indianapolis
Holcomb last week announced new restrictions for Indiana counties based on the state’s color-coded map.
The governor said he doesn’t want businesses to have to shut down again, and these efforts will help prevent further restrictions as the number of hospitalized patients remains at all-time-high levels.
