Thursday, October 15, 2020

INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana will stay in Stage 5 of its reopening plan for at least another month.

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb said in his weekly coronavirus briefing this week that Stage 5 would be extended through at least November 14th. In addition, the state's mask mandate will as well.

Governor Holcomb decided to continue both the mask mandate and Stage 5 after an increase in the positivity rate throughout the Hoosier state.

State Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box joined the briefing remotely to share that she, her daughter, and her grandson have all tested positive for the coronavirus. She said she's not experiencing symptoms, while her daughter and grandson are experiencing mild symptoms. Box worked with contact tracers to notify anyone she was in contact with of the diagnosis.

As a precaution, and per protocol, Governor Holcomb and other top state officials have been or will be tested.
