As Indiana continues to see positive results combating the COVID-19 public health threat, Governor Eric Holcomb has a forward-thinking, detailed strategy to safely reopen the Hoosier State. Back on Track Indiana is guided by public health data and includes five phases to execute a powerful economic recovery by July 4th.
Governor Holcomb’s plan centers on four principles to balance public safety and economic prosperity while navigating Indiana’s path ahead:
- Observing a 14-day decrease in hospitalized COVID-19 patients
- Maintaining the state’s surge capacity for critical care beds and ventilators
- Testing all Hoosiers showing COVID-19 symptoms
- Expanding the state’s contact tracing program
Governor Holcomb is also working in a collaborative manner to providing local municipalities with the flexibility to reopen at their own pace to ensure their individual needs are met, and he believes Hoosiers are well-qualified to pull together for the greater good.
“Across Indiana, we have witnessed a spirit of cooperation and caring for others that has touched my heart,” said Governor Holcomb. “May this spirit of appreciation for one another carry on long after the torment of COVID-19 is behind us. We are doing this together! And together, we will overcome this disease, and come out a stronger Indiana.”
As the state starts down the road to recovery, Hoosiers can rely on Governor Holcomb’s sound judgment and effective decision-making to truly put Indiana “back on track.”
