Governor Eric Holcomb Gives an Update on COVID-19 before “Stay at Home” Order Goes into Effect


>>>WE’RE BREAKING OUR REGULAR PROGRAMMING TO TAKE YOU LIVE TO THE INDIANA STATEHOUSE WHERE ERIC HOLCOMB IS SPEAKING ABOUT THE STAY AT HOME ORDER. LET’S LISTEN IN.>>WATCHING OR TUNING IN TO FOR SOME FURTHER UPDATES SHALL WE HAVE A FEW HERE THIS AFTERNOON. AND I’M GOING TO QUICKLY LATERAL THE MICROPHONE AND PODIUM OVER TO DR. SULLIVAN FROM THE FSSA. SHE IS IN UNIFORM AND SHE IS GOING TO SCURRY OFF AFTER SHE GIVES HER UPDATE TO RILEY HOSPITAL. SHE’S GOING TO BE CARING FOR AND SAVING SOME LIVES. DR. SULLIVAN, YOU WANT TO GIVE US AN UPDATE? CAN BE.>>THANK YOU. I’M DR. JENNIFER SULLIVAN, THE DIRECTOR GENERAL AT INDIANA SOCIAL SERVICES ASSOCIATION. THOSE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS ARE SOME OF OUR STATE’S MOST VULNERABLE DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC. THEY LACK A PLACE FOR QUARANTINE AND MANY HAVE OTHER MEDICAL CONDITIONS, THEY ARE AT HIGHER RISK IF THEY GET THE DISEASE. FURTHER MORE, WITH MANY PEOPLE CLOSE TOGETHER IN EXISTING SHELTERS, A GENERAL SPREAD OF COVID-19 IN THIS POPULATION QUICKLY BECOMES A PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY. AND AN ADDITIONAL BURDEN ON OUR HEALTHCARE SYSTEM. FROM AN EARLY TIME IN OUR RESPONSE WE THEREFORE KNEW WE NEEDED TO DO EVERYTHING WE COULD TO AVOID SUCH A PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY AND PROTECT THIS VULNERABLE POPULATION. TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE WE HAVE COLLABORATED WITH AN ESTABLISHED INDIANA PARTNER, ORGANIZATIONS ALREADY SERVING THOSE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS AND THE MARION COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH DEPARTMENT. TODAY WE CAN ANNOUNCE THAT WE HAVE SECURED A LOCATION TO ALLOW FOR QUARANTINE AND SELF CARE FOR THOSE IN THIS POPULATION AFFECTED BY COVID-19. THIS WILL ALLOW FOR SAFE ACCOMMODATIONS FOR RECOVERY AND WILL ALSO FREE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT BEDS ACROSS THE CITY FOR ADDITIONAL PATIENTS NEEDING CARE. HOSPITALS, SELECT CLINICS AND THE MARION COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH DEPARTMENT WILL BE ABLE TO REFER THOSE MEETING CRITERIA TO THIS LOCATION. THROUGH ADDITIONAL COLLABORATIONS, SAZ CAN NAZ SI HEALTH IS TAKING THE LEAD FOR PLANS ON STAFFING ON OUR NATIONAL GUARD IS TAKING THE LEAD ON SECURITY. WE PLAN TO ACCEPT THE FIRST INDIVIDUALS WITHIN THE NEXT FEW DAYS. WE WILL ALSO WORK WITH ADDITIONAL COMMUNITY TOSS REPLICATE THIS COLLABORATION ACROSS STATE OF INDIANA. A DONATION MADE BY THE LILLY ENDOWMENT THAT IS UNENCUMBERED WILL ENABLE US TO DO MANY THINGS, INCLUDING THIS INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT PROJECT. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU, DR. SULLIVAN. DR. BOX, YOU WANT TO GIVE US A QUICK SYNOPSIS OF WHAT HAS OCCURRED OVER THE LAST 24 HOURING IN TERMS OF TESTING AND SUPPLIES, SET?>>THANK YOU, GOVERNOR. I’M THE INDIANA STATE HEALTH COMMISSIONER. WE HAVE TO SADLY REPORT THAT WE REPORTED ON FIVE ADDITIONAL INDIANA DEATHS FROM COVID-19. THAT MEANS A TOTAL OF 12 HOOSIERS HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES TO THIS VIRUS. I WANT TO EMPHASIZE THAT THESE INDIVIDUALS ARE NOT NUMBERS. FOR EVERY SINGLE HOOSIER THAT HAS LOST THEIR LIFE, THERE IS A FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND/OR COMMUNITY OUT THERE THAT IS GRIEVING THEIR LOSS. WE ALSO HAVE 107 NEW POSITIVE CASES HERE IN THE STATE OF INDIANA INCLUDING 51 IN MARION COUNTY. WE CONTINUE TO SEE THE NUMBER OF POSITIVE CASES GO UP AS TESTING INCREASES ACROSS OUR STATE. TO DATE NEARLY 3,000 TESTS HAVE BEEN REPORTED TO THE INDIANA STATE BOARD OF HEALTH. I WANT TO CONTINUE TO THANK ELI LILLY FOR THEIR HELP IN THIS TESTING EFFORT. LILLY IS QUICKLY SCALING UP THEIR CAPACITY TO 3 TO 400 TESTS PER DAY. AND OUR LAB CONTINUE TOSS AUGMENT THESE NUMBERS BY TESTING TARGETED POPULATIONS OF HIGH RISK INDIVIDUALS. WE’RE ALSO GETTING RESULTS FROM INDIANA UNIVERSITY, LAB CORPS. QUEST AND OTHER PRIVATE LABS. OVERALL ABOUT 13 PERCENT OF OUR TESTS ARE COMING BACK POSITIVE. INDIANA STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH CONTINUES TO SUPPORT TARGETED TESTING RATHER THAN TESTING EVERYONE WHO IS SICK. WE’RE LEAVING THE DECISION OF WHO SHOULD BE TESTED IN THE HANDS OF OUR VERY ASTUTE CLINICIANS BASED ON THE PATIENT’S PRESENTATION, MEDICAL HISTORY AND WHERE THEY WORK. IF YOU’RE SICK, YOU SHOULD ALREADY BE STAYING HOME. BUT DO YOUR BEST TO ISOLATE YOURSELF IN YOUR HOME. SEPARATE YOUR BATHROOM AND BEDROOM IF POSSIBLE FROM OTHER INDIVIDUALS, AND CONSIDER THAT EVERYONE ELSE IN YOUR HOME MAY GET SICK. SO PLEASE SEPARATE THE HIGH RISK POPULATIONS LIKE GRANDMA AND GRANDPA OR GREAT AUNTS, GREAT UNCLES, WHOEVER THAT MIGHT BE. DO NOT GO TO WORK IF YOU’RE SICK. WE’RE WORKING TO BREAK DOWN THE CASES WITH REGARDS TO GENDER AND AGE AND WANT TO BE ABLE TO SUPPORT POSTING THIS INFORMATION VERY SOON. WE’RE WORKING ON OTHER STEPS TO IMPROVE THE DATA REPORTING AND HOPE TO HAVE THOSE IN PLACE WITHIN THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS. WE KNOW THAT PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT IS STILL A CONCERN, AND WE’VE REQUESTED THE REST OF THE INDIANA SHARE FROM THE STRATEGIC NATIONAL STOCKPILE. WE’RE ALSO HOPING TO RECEIVE FEMA SUPPLIES. TO SUPPLEMENT, INDUSTRIES AND ORGANIZATIONS FROM ALL OVER THE STATE HAVE DONATED PPE, TO THEIR LOCAL HOSPITALS AND THEIR HEALTH DEPARTMENTS. DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS IS MAKING GOWNS AND MASKS AND SEVERAL OTHER MANUFACTURING COMPANIES ARE STEPPING UP TO HELP US OUT. THIS SHOWS INDIANA HAS A STRONG SPIRIT. WE’RE WORKING TO INCREASE THE WORKFORCE AND REMOVE BARRIERS TO RETIRED HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS RETURNING TO WORK IN SOME CAPACITY. PERSONNEL AND EQUIPMENT ARE OBVIOUSLY NEEDED TO ADDRESS THIS CRISIS. AND WE’RE CONSIDERING ALL OPTIONS AND GATHERING LISTS OF SUPPORT THAT WHEN NEEDED WILL BE ABLE TO BE USED. I WAS VERY HAPPY TO HEAR THAT GM IN KOKOMO IS PARTNERING WITH VIN TECH LIFE SYSTEM TO RAMP UP PRODUCTION OF VENT LATERS SOON AND THAT WILL ADD TO OUR EXISTING CAPABILITIES ACROSS THE STATE. WE’RE WORKING CLOSELY WITH MAJOR HOSPITAL SYSTEMS TO UNDERSTAND THEIR BASELINE CAPACITY FOR ICU BEDS AND VENTILATORS AND WHAT IS THEIR REALISTIC SURGE CAPACITY FOR THOSE SAME FACTORS. THIS WILL HELP OUR HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS MEET THE CHALLENGES THAT WE WILL FACE IN THE COMING WEEKS. WE’RE HAVING REGIONAL CALLS, FACILITATED WITH THE INDIANA HOSPITAL ASSOCIATION AND HOSPITAL SYSTEMS ALL ACROSS THE STATE. I WANT TO EMPHASIZE THAT WE’RE STILL IN THE VERY EARLY PARTS OF THIS OUTBREAK. WE WILL CONTINUE TO SEE MORE CASES. EVERY STATE IS HAVING TO ADAPT DAILY. AS THE SITUATION CHANGES. THAT INCLUDES HOW WE INVESTIGATE CASES. ACROSS THE COUNTRY STATES ARE FINDING THAT THE TRADITIONAL APPROACH TO INVESTIGATING CASES AND TRACKING DOWN EVERY SINGLE CONTACT OF A PERSON WHO TESTED POSITIVE IS NOT SUSTAINABLE. AS A NUMBER OF COVID-19 CASES CONTINUE TO GROW, HEALTH OFFICIALS SIMPLY CANNOT TRACE THE STEPS OF EVERY SINGLE INDIVIDUAL. WE WILL CONTINUE TO FOCUS ON TRACING AND TESTING OUR HIGHEST RISK SETTINGS LIKE HEALTHCARE XAS I WILLS, LONG-TERM CARE FACILITY, JAILS AND DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS. SO I’M ASKING FOR ALL OF US TO TAKE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR OURSELVES AND FOR OUR COMMUNITIES. IF YOU TEST POSITIVE, TELL YOUR EMPLOYER AND ANYONE THAT YOU WERE IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH SO THAT THEY CAN QUARANTINE THEMSELVES AND MONITOR FOR SYMPTOMS. I KNOW THIS IS AN UNPRECEDENTED AND DIFFICULT TIME FOR MANY. BUT I URGE YOU TO PLEASE STAY HOME. IF YOU HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS, AND YOU’RE NOT EMPLOYED IN ESSENTIAL SERVICES. ESPECIALLY IF YOU WORK IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO OTHERS OR WORK WITH VULNERABLE POPULATIONS. IF WE ALL TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY AND WE ALL DO OUR PART, WE CAN SLOW THE SPREAD OF THIS VIRUS. AND SAVE LIVES. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>THANK YOU, DOCTOR. DR. O’DONNELL, DR. KAUFMAN, WANT TO GIVE US AN UPDATE ON THE CENTRALIZED EMERGENCY CENTER AND THE DISPATCH PROTOCOL AND READINESS?>>THANK YOU. I’M MICHAEL KAUFMAN, WITH THE INDIANA DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY. THE EMS DIVISION OF IDHS HAS BEEN WORKING TO PROVIDE EMS PROVIDER AGENCIES AND FIRST RESPONDERS ACROSS THE INDIANA TIRE STATE WITH BEST PRACTICE PROTOCOLS AND INFORMATION AS PART OF A COORDINATED EFFORT TO RESPOND TO COVID-19. OUR MAIN GOAL IN RESPONSE AND PLANNING IS TO KEEP OUR EMS SYSTEM OPERATIONAL AND ALLOWING RESOURCES TO THOSE PATIENTS NEEDING CARE AND ATTEMPTING TO DIRECT EMERGENCY PATIENTS TO PROPER TREATMENT FACILITIES. TO DATE OUR EFFORTS HAVE BEEN FOCUSSED ON PUBLIC SAFETY ANSWERING POINTS OR COMMUNE CENTERS AND EMS AGENCIES OR SERVICES THAT RESPOND WHEN YOU CALL 911. TO DATE SOME OF THOSE EFFORTS INCLUDE GIVING DISPATCH ADDITIONAL RESOURCES TO SCREEN PATIENTS AND HELP DIRECT THEM TO THE MOST APPROPRIATE RESOURCE. 911 WILL ALWAYS BE AVAILABLE WHEN YOU CALL FOR HELP. BUT BY SCREENING SOME CALLS WITH ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS DISPATCH CAN HELP GET THE RIGHT CARE TO THE RIGHT PATIENTS MORE QUICKLY. WE’RE GIVING EMS PROVIDER AGENCIES THE ABILITY TO SCREEN PATIENTS AND SUGGEST ALTERNATE DESTINATIONS AND ALTERNATE MODES OF TRANSPORTATION, LEAVING OUR AMBULANCES AVAILABLE TO RESPOND TO THE MOST CRITICAL PATIENTS IN NEED. DHS HAS EXPANDED THE AVAILABLE PREHOSPITAL WORKFORCE BY ISSUING WAIVERS OF SELECTED RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR AMBULANCE PROVIDER AGENCIES ALLOWING FOR NONTRADITIONAL THROUGH CONFIGURE VAGUSES AND STAFFING PATTERNS SHOULD THE SURGE CAPACITY DICTATE THOSE AKS SHUNS. WE’RE WORKING VERY CLOSELY WITH DR. BOX AND THE PARTNERS AT INDIANA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH TO HELP CREATE A REALTIME TOOL OF OUR ENTIRE STATE EMS RESOURCE SYSTEM. TO ASSIST THE LOCAL, DISTRICT AND STATE EMERGENCY OPERATION CENTERS IN AMBULANCE OPERATIONS AND STATUS AND ASSET TRACKING. AND LASTLY, WE’RE ALLOWING EMS PROVIDER AGENCIES THE USE OF ALTERNATE TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES, SHOULD THE SURGE NEED EXCEED THE OPERATIONAL CAPACITY OF THAT PART OF OUR SYSTEM. EMERGENCY RESPONDERS AND AMBULANCE AGENCIES HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE MOST UP TO DATE REGULATIONS BY THE CDC AND DEPARTMENT OF HOME LAND SECURITY IN ORDER TO PROTECT FIRST RESPONDERS AND ALLOW THEM TO CONTINUE TO PROVIDE EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE TO HOOSIERS ACROSS IND NAR. I’M GOING TO TURN THE MICROPHONE OVER TO DR. DAN O’DONNELL, CHIEF OF THE INDIANAPOLIS EMS AND HE’S GOING TO TALK ABOUT OUR REGIONAL OPERATION CENTER PLANNING.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. GOOD AFTERNOON. MY NAME IS DR. DAN O’DONNELL, THE CHIEF OF INDIANAPOLIS EMERGENCY SERVICES. MARION COUNTY’S EMERGENCY OPERATION STOOD UP TO A LEVEL 1 STATUS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE STATE EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTER. WE’VE BEEN WORKING TIRELESSLY WITH THE STATE EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTER TO ENSURE THAT WE ARE PROVIDING THE NECESSARY SERVICES AND THE NECESSARY CARE FOR ALL PATIENTS AND CITIZENS OF INDIANAPOLIS, MARION COUNTY, THE SURROUNDING AREA AND STATE. I’M GOING TO THANK EVERYONE AND COMMENDING THEM ON THEIR COORDINATION OF THE REGIONAL OPERATION CENTER WHICH WILL HELP EXPAND OUR OVERALL CAPACITY AND PROVIDE MUCH NEEDED SUPPORT TO ALL OF OUR AREA HOSPITAL PERSONNEL, SUPPLIES AND BED SPACE. WE KNOW THIS IS AN UNCOMMON SOLUTION BUT WE’RE IN A TIME OF UNCOMMON PROBLEMS REQUIRE THESE SOLUTIONS. WE MUST ALL COME TO LEVERAGE EVERYONE’S RESOURCES TO TREAT BOTH THOSE AFFECTED BY THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, AS WELL AS THOSE SUFFERING FROM OTHER ILLNESSES. THANK YOU. I WANT TO THANK ALL OF OUR REGIONAL HOSPITAL SYSTEMS, FOR STEPPING UP TOGETHER AND WORKING THROUGH THIS INITIAL PHASE AND RESPONSE. INCLUDING ESCA NOZ SI, AND PRINCETON. WE WANT TO RESPOND TO UNMET NEEDS. TO THE PEOPLE WATCHING THIS FROM HOME, AS DR. KAUFMAN SAID, IF YOU NEED US, WE’RE THERE FOR YOU. WE WILL RESPOND. OUR ASK OF YOU IS TO BE AS OPEN AND FORTHCOMING WITH INFORMATION AS POSSIBLE. THIS IS A SITUATION WHERE THE MOST INFORMATION WE CAN GET, THE BETTER FOR EVERYONE. HELP KEEP EVERYONE SAFE BY TELLING DISPATCHERS IF YOU’VE BEEN FEELING SICK OR IF THERE’S SICK LOVED ONES IN THE HOME. WE NEED EVERYONE TO DO THEIR PART TO KEEP US SAFE. YOU CANNOT GIVE US TOO MUCH INFORMATION AT THIS TIME. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR STICKING TOGETHER. AND HELPING US GET THROUGH THIS DIFFICULT TIME. I’M CONFIDENT WE WILL GET THERE, AND BUT THE TIME IS NOW TO STAY HOME AND TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU, DOCTOR. A PERFECT SEGUE MOVING FROM PUBLIC HEALTH TO PUBLIC SAFETY. DIRECTOR STEVE COX, ARE YOU IN MY EYE SHOT? PERFECT. YOU WANT TO GIVE US AN UPDATE ON THE HOTLINE AND SOME OTHER DEVELOPMENTS?>>GOOD AFTERNOON. THIS MORNING WE ACTIVATED THE INDIANA CALL CENTER FOR CRITICAL INDUSTRIES TO ANSWER QUESTIONS FROM HOOSIERS CONCERNING WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES IN THE STATE. IF FULL TRANSPARENCY THERE WAS A SLIGHT TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY WHEN WE STARTED OUR CALL CENTER. WHICH WAS QUICKLY RECTIFIED. AND WE RECOGNIZE THAT BECAUSE OF THE CALL VOLUME ASSOCIATED BASICALLY OVERLOADED OUR SYSTEM. BUT WE WERE ABLE TO GET IT UP AND RUNNING AFTER ABOUT AN HOUR. AS OF 2:00 P.M. TODAY WE RECEIVED OVER 1,000 CALLS IN THE CENTER AND WE WILL REMAIN OPEN UNTIL 6:00 P.M. EASTERN STANDARD TIME. MOVING FORWARD THE CALL CENTER WILL BE OPEN FOR CALLS FROM 9:00 A.M. TO 6:00 P.M. EACH DAY. THE CALL CENTER NUMBER IS 1-877-820-0890. THIS THIS IS FOR BUSINESSES CONCERNING WHAT ARE CONSIDERED ESSENTIAL SERVICES. MEANWHILE THE IN.GOV WEBSITE HAS RESOURCES FOR MOST QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE GOVERNOR’S ORDER. AS A REMIND ERP, THE GOVERNOR CITED THE FOLLOWING INDUSTRIES AS BROAD EXAMPLES OF ESSENTIAL BUSINESS THAT SHOULD REMAIN OPEN: HOSPITALS, DOCTORS OFFICES, DELIVERY SERVICES, GARBAGE PICKUP, PHARMACIES, GAS STATIONS, PUBLIC SAFETY AGENCIES, GROCERY STORES, AND ANY HEALTHCARE FACILITY. THIS IS NOT A COMPREHENSIVE LIST, BUT PLEASE BE ASSURED THAT IF YOU HAVE A BUSINESS IN THESE CATEGORIES, YOU’RE LISTED AS ESSENTIAL. YOU CAN FIND DETAILS OF THE EXECUTIVE ORDER AT IN.GOV/CRITICALINDUSTRIES. THERE’S AN FAQ PAGE THERE THAT CAN HELP THE PUBLIC NAVIGATE THESE QUESTIONS ONLINE. THE EXECUTIVE ORDER IN ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE ON ESSENTIAL VERSUS NONESSENTIAL INDUSTRIES ARE AVAILABLE THERE TO HELP RESOLVE QUESTIONS AS WELL. I’D LIKE TO FOCUS ONE QUICK POINT THAT THIS IS SPECIFICALLY FOR BUSINESSES AND NOT THE INDIVIDUAL EMPLOYEES WORKING IN THOSE BUSINESSES FOR US TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE GUIDANCE. MANY OF THE CALLS THAT WE’VE RECEIVED TODAY WERE CALLS FROM EMPLOYEES AND BASICALLY THE CALL CENTER IS SET UP IN ORDER FOR US TO BE ABLE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ASSOCIATED WITH THE BUSINESSES THEMSELVES. WE WOULD ASK THAT EMPLOYEES MAINTAIN DIRECT CONTACT WITH THE EMPLOYER THAT YOU’RE WORKING FOR, TO FIND OUT WHETHER OR NOT YOUR BUSINESS IS LISTED AS ESSENTIAL. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE ON GOVERNOR HOLCOMB’S WEBSITE AT WWW.IN.GOV/CORONAVIRUS. IN THE CALL CENTER WE’VE BEEN EXPERIENCING HEAVY CALL VOLUME TODAY. WE ASK FOR YOUR PATIENCE AS WE ATTEMPT TO ANSWER ALL CALLS COMING INTO THE CENTER. THANK YOU.>>I’D ASK SUPERINTENDENT DOUG CARTER IF YOU CAN ELABORATE ON THE EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT I SIGNED YESTERDAY, HOW THAT MAY HAVE CHANGED YOUR DAILY DUTIES AND OURS AS WELL.>>I’D LIKE TO START OFF BY SAYING WE ALL ARE GOING TO BE OKAY. WE ALL ARE GOING TO BE OKAY. GOVERNOR HOLCOMB HAS TAKEN UNPRECEDENTED STEPS IN INDIANA TO PROTECT ALL OF US. THE DIRECTIVE FOR HOOSIERS TO STAY HOME, AS DESCRIBED IN GREAT DETAIL IN EXECUTIVE ORDER 20-08 IS A COMMON SENSE NEXT STEP APPROACH WITH THE INTENT OF ENSURING THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PEOPLE SELF ISOLATE. AND USE THE APPROPRIATE LEVEL OF DISTANCING THIS COMMON SENSE APPROACH REQUIRES EACH HOOSIER TO DO WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW YOU SHOULD. STAY HOME, ESSENTIAL TRAVEL ONLY, AND TAKE CARE OF OTHERS. I CAN KEEN A I CAN KEENLY AWARE THAT OUR CITIZENS ARE EXPERIENCING TREMENDOUS FEAR AND ANXIETY. ALL BECAUSE OF THE UNKNOWN. WE ALL ARE FEELING THAT IN SOME WAY OR ANOTHER. WHILE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS HAVE ENORMOUS POWERS AFFORDED TO THEM BY OUR CONSTITUTION AND STATE STATUTES, WE MUST, AND WE WILL, USE DISCRETION WITH ANY ENFORCEMENT DURING THIS UNPRECEDENTED TIME. I HAVE OFFERED DIRECTION TO ALL INDIANA STATE TROOPERS, ALL POLICE CHIEFS, ALL SHERIFFS, ALL TOWN MARSHAL, AND ALL PROSECUTORS IN THE STATE OF INDIANA, IN WRITTEN FORM. WE ALL ARE SEEING THAT OUR CITIZENS ARE AFRAID, ARE CONFUSED, AND ARE WONDERING ABOUT THEIR FUTURE. JUST LIKE US. PLEASE KNOW THAT WE WILL HELP YOU ALONG THE WAY. THAT’S WHAT WE DO. AND WE ARE AS WELL COORDINATED NOW AS WE HAVE EVER BEEN IN OUR LIFETIME. BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT MY BOSS, GOVERNOR HOLCOMB, EXPECTS. AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT WE’LL DO. THERE’S SOME FEAR-MONGERING GOING ON ON THE INTERNET. I WANT TO READ AN EXAMPLE TO YOU. I THINK IT’S VERY APPROPRIATE TO GIVE YOU TWO EXAMPLES OF WHAT THIS MEANS AND WHAT IT MIGHT LOOK LIKE. THERE’S A FACEBOOK POST SCARING PEOPLE THAT SAYS: THE CENTRAL INDIANA HOSPITALS ARE ALREADY SHORT OF VENTILATORS AND HAVE MADE A DECISION THAT NO ONE OVER 60 WILL RECEIVE VENTILATORS, EVEN IF NEEDED. BASICALLY A DECISION TO LET THEM PERISH. I DON’T KNOW WHO IS DOING PRESS WORK TO KEEP THIS PUBLIC ASSURED, BUT I HOPE THIS FEAR-GENERATING RUMOR CAN BE STOMPED AND I AM DISGUSTED. AT THIS POINT IN TIME WHEN WE ARE CHALLENGED BEYOND ANYTHING WE’VE EVER EXPERIENCED IN OUR LIFETIMES THAT SOMEBODY WOULD SAY SUCH A THING. PLEASE ONLY GO TO THOSE SITES EVERYBODY THAT’S WATCHING AND LISTENING TO THIS THAT YOU KNOW ARE REPUTABLE. IT’S EASY TO SAY SOMETHING THAW DON’T BELIEVE WHEN YOU’RE IN SOME FAR OFF PLACE. WE MUST WATCH OUT FOR EACH OTHER. ADDITIONALLY, I HAD A STAFF MEMBER COME UP TO ME TODAY IN FEAR ABOUT HOW SHE IS GOING TO GET HOME FROM WORK. HOW IS SHE GOING TO GET HOME FROM WORK? SHE DIDN’T DRIVE HOME. SHE’S GOING TO GET HOME AND SHE’S GOING TO BE JUST FINE. THE GOVERNOR WAS VERY THOUGHTFUL OF EXECUTIVE ORDER 20-08 THAT ALLOWED TREMENDOUS MOBILITY, THE INTENT OF THAT WAS TO DO ALL THAT WE CAN DO THAT HE COULD DO, TO PROTECT THE CITIZENS OF OUR STATE. AND FRANKLY I THINK HE’S DONE IT PRETTY DARN WELL. I’LL GLADLY PROVIDE THE WRITTEN DOCUMENTATION THAT I’VE SENT OUT STATEWIDE WHEN THIS IS OVER. WE CANNOT LET THIS THREAT DEFINE US. BUT WE KNOW THAT OUR RESPONSE, ALL OF OUR RESPONSES, WILL — I’VE HEARD GOVERNOR HOLCOMB SAY MANY TIMES, LET THIS BE OUR FINEST HOUR. AND I THINK IT WILL.>>THANK YOU, SUPERINTENDENT. MOVING OVER NOW TO THE ECONOMIC FRONT, COMMISSIONER FRED PAYNE, YOU WANT TO GIVE US AN UPDATE ON WHERE WE ARE IN TERMS OF UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE BENEFITS AND HOW YOU CAN UPDATE US ON KIND OF A WEEKLY BASIS?>>MY NAME IS FRED PAYNE, THE COMMISSIONER OF THE INDIANA DEPARTMENT OF WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT. JUST LIKE OUR SISTER STATES WE’VE EVEN AN UNPRECEDENTED NUMBER OF NEWLY FILED UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE CLAIMS. JUST LAST WEEK WE EXPERIENCED THE LARGEST NUMBER OF NEW INSURANCE CLAIMS OR JUST ABOUT THE LARGEST NUMBER OF NEW INSURANCE CLAIMS THAT WE’VE SEEN IN QUITE SOME TIME. JUST TO PUT THIS IN REFERENCE FOR YOU, YESTERDAY ALONE WE FEEL THAT OVER 38,000 PHONE CALLS WITH OUR CONTACT CENTER, ASKING QUESTIONS ALONG THE LINES OF HOW CAN I APPLY, AND WHO IS ELIGIBLE, WE FIELDED ELIGIBLE, WE FIELD ED THESE CALLS. I WANT TO SPEND A LITTLE TIME TALKING ABOUT JUST THAT, WHO IS ELIGIBLE AND HOW INDIVIDUALS CAN APPLY. FIRST, I DO WANT TO SAY THAT EVERY HOOSIER WHO HAS WORKED AND WHO IS OUT OF WORK DUE TO NO REASON OF THEIR OWN IS ELIGIBLE TO APPLY FOR THEIR UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE BENEFITS. EVEN THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN IMPACTED THROUGH A TEMPORARY LAYOFF. THE GOVERNOR HAS GIVEN US OUR EVERY ASK TO PROVIDE AS MUCH FLEXIBILITY UNDER OUR INDIANA LAWS AS POSSIBLE TO ENSURE THAT WE ARE PROVIDING BENEFITS TO AS MANY HOOSIERS AS POSSIBLE. SO NOW MORE HOOSIERS CAN QUALIFY LIKE THOSE WHO ARE QUAN TEENED AND THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO MUST STAY AT HOME DUE TO SCHOOL CLOSINGS. SO HOW TO FILE. SO IF YOU AREN’T SURE THAT YOU’RE ELIGIBLE, GO TO OUR WEBSITE AND JUST FILE. HOW DO I APPLY? WELL, WE APPLY ONLINE, BY USING A COMPUTER OR SMART PHONE. YOU CAN GO TO THE WEBSITE, WWW.UNEMPLOYMENT.IN.GOV. ON THE WEBSITE YOU’LL FIND PLENTY OF TOOLS TO HELP GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE PROCESS. THERE’S A FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS SECTION, THERE’S ACTUALLY AN ONLINE HANDBOOK, AND THERE’S ALSO A VIDEO TUTORIAL THAT CAN HELP YOU THROUGH THE PROCESS. IF YOU HAVE FURTHER QUESTIONS, YOU CAN REACH OUT TO ONE OF THE CONTACT CENTERS AND WE’LL ENSURE THAT WE CALL YOU BACK AND ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS. WE DO HAVE A SERIES OF WEBINARS PLANNED FOR INDIVIDUALS AND BUSINESSES THAT ARE SCHEDULED FOR THIS WEEK, AND WE’LL SCHEDULE MORE TO COME DURING NEXT WEEK AND THE FOLLOWING WEEKS AS NEEDED. YOU CAN ALSO GO TO THE WEBSITE AND FIND OUT WHEN THOSE WEBINARS WILL OCCUR AND JUST HOW TO APPLY FOR THOSE. SO FOR THE EMPLOYERS, EMPLOYERS CAN ALSO HELP IN THIS PROCESS. THEY CAN HELP SPEED THINGS ALONG AS WELL. IF YOU ARE AN EMPLOYER AND YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE EMPLOYEES THAT YOU UNFORTUNATELY ARE GOING TO LAY OFF TEMPORARILY, YOU CAN HELP US TO PROCESS THEIR CLAIMS A LITTLE FASTER BY PROVIDING US PERTINENT INFORMATION. AND YOU CAN CONTACT US AND WE’LL LET YOU KNOW WHAT INFORMATION WE CAN SHARE — WE NEED YOU TO SHARE WITH US. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER. AND TOMORROW YOU’LL BE HEARING FROM LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR CROUCH AND YOU’LL BE HEAR FROMMING SECRETARY SHELLINGER, MORE ON THE ECONOMIC FRONT. BEFORE I TAKE ANY QUESTIONS, I JUST WANTED TO ALSO SAY MYSELF, WHAT WE DID YESTERDAY WAS VERY IMPORTANT, BUT MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE WHAT IS THE WHY. WE ARE GOING TO THROW EVERYTHING BACK AT REPELLING COVID-19 THAT WE HAVE. AND THAT CALLS US ALL TO THE SAME PLACE. IT — NOT JUST IN THE STATE OF INDIANA, BUT ACROSS THE COUNTRY. YOU SAW MANY OTHER STATES OVER THE LAST 96 HOURS ARRIVE AT THE SAME POSITION, YOU SAW MICHIGAN, OHIO, ILLINOIS, KENTUCKY, WISCONSIN, WHO ARE IN A SIMILAR POSTURE OF ACTING NOW, FIGHTING BACK. THAT’S THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF HUNKER DOWN HOOSIERS, IT’S TO MAKE SURE THAT WE GET THROUGH THIS STORM AS FAST AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE. AND AGAIN, WE UNDERSTAND THERE ARE GOING TO BE SOME BUMPS ALONG THE WAY. THERE’S GOING TO BE A CALL CENTER THAT GETS OVERLOADED. BUT WE’RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO BE VERY TRANSPARENT WITH YOU. ON A VERY REGULAR BASIS. AND WHEN I SAY YOU, I MEAN 6.7 PLUS MILLION HOOSIERS. THE GOOD NEWS IS DURING ALL THIS UNCERTAINTY THAT WE’RE ALL SAILING THROUGH, WE ARE SAILING THROUGH IT. AND HOOSIERS ARE STEPPING FORWARD IN NUMEROUS AND VARIOUS WAYS, IN TIMES OF ADVERSITY. YOU SEE TRUE CHARACTER REVEALED. AND THE SILVER LINING IN ALL OF THIS IS NOT ONLY AM I CONVINCED WE’RE GOING TO COME OUT ON THE OTHER SIDE ON A MUCH STRONGER POSITION, BUT WE GET TO COMPILE SO MANY — DR. SULLIVAN USED THE WORD “SPIRIT.” WE GET TO COMPILE SO MANY ACTS OF GENEROSITY, THAT SPIRIT OF COOPERATION, THAT SPIRIT OF NOT JUST ON THE EMS FRONT OR THE LAW ENFORCEMENT — WHICH THEIR JOB IS TO SERVE AND PROTECT FIRST AND FOREMOST. THAT’S HOW THEY’LL LEAN INTO THIS. IS TO HELP, TO USE THE SUPERINTENDENT’S WORD. WE’RE ALSO SEEING AVERAGE, ORDINARY CITIZENS THAT HAVEN’T STEPPED FORWARD BEFORE. MAYBE THEY WEAR A UNIFORM, THE POLICE IN SOUTHPORT NOW ARE MAKING RUNS FOR THE ELDERLY, MAKING SURE THAT THEY GET FOOD, MAKING SURE THEY GET TO A DOCTOR’S APPOINTMENT. MAKING SURE THEY GET MEDICINE. PICK UP THE PRESCRIPTIONS FOR THEM. WE HAD — THEY WILL REMAIN ANONYMOUS, BUT WE HAD SOMEONE WALK INTO THE INDIANA STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH YESTERDAY, DROPPED OFF 150 N95 MASKS, SAID I DON’T WANT ANYTHING. I DON’T WANT RECOGNITION, I DON’T WANT TO BE PAID. I WANT HELP, THAT’S ALL I WANT TO DO. USE THEM AS YOU WANT. THE CASINO UP IN HAMMOND, INDIANA, TOOK THEIR — WHEN THEY CLOSED DOWN, THEY QUICKLY TURNED AND SAID WE’RE GOING TO GET OUR PERISHABLE FOOD TO COMMUNITY PROGRAMS. QUICKLY. AND IN NEW ALBANY YOU’VE GOT A COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP THAT’S HELPING SOME OF THE RESTAURANT OWNERS AND HELPING PEOPLE WHO ARE OUT OF WORK WITH A DAILY STIPEND. THESE ARE FOLKS THAT ARE COMING OUT OF THE WOODWORK. THERE’S A REFURBISHED SCHOOL BUS IN PLAIN FIELD THAT IS DELIVERING MEALS. THIS IS IN ADDITION TO AND ON TOP OF AND ALONGSIDE, DR. SULLIVAN MENTIONED IN PASSING, AND IT SHOULD BE UNDERSCORED AGAIN, WE RECEIVED EARLIER TODAY A COMMITMENT OF 5 MILLION DOLLARS FROM THE LILLY ENDOWMENT TO USE AS WE SEE FIT TO FIGHT BACK. THAT’S HOW WE’RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO HELP THE HOMELESS THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF INDIANA. THIS IS GOING TO HAVE A TRANSFORMATIONAL POSITIVE IMPACT EVEN WHEN WE GET TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS. WE’RE LEARNING HOW TO DO THINGS IN A MOMENT OF CRISIS. WE’RE GOING TO BENEFIT AN UNTOLD NUMBER OF PEOPLE. MAYBE SOME PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN ON THE MARGINS. WE’RE DOING THE RIGHT THING. AND TO BE PART OF THIS TEAM — AND WHEN I SAY TEAM, I MEAN EVERYBODY. I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT THIS ADMINISTRATION, NOT TALKING ABOUT THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH OR LEGISLATIVE BRANCH OR JUDICIAL BRANCH ON OR ABOUT FOLK WHO IS WORK INSIDE THIS BUILDING. I’M TALKING ABOUT EVERYBODY. AND I’LL QUOTE COACH DALE, I DO A LOT ANYWAY, I’LL QUOTE COACH DALE. MY TEAM IS ON THE COURT. AND I’M PRETTY PROUD THAT PEOPLE ARE STEPPING UP AND PLAYING DIFFERENT ROLES, SETTING PINS AND GETTING REBOUNDS AND BLOCKING OUT. AND EVERYBODY IS TRYING TO BE THE SHOOTER. I GET IT, THIS IS A TIME OF CHANGE, UNCERTAINTY. MAYBE A LITTLE CABIN FEVER ALREADY. I TALKED TO MY PARENTS JUST YESTERDAY. THEY SAID THE HOUSE HAS NEVER BEEN CLEANER. GOT A LITTLE CABIN FEVER. I SAID PAINT THE KITCHEN TRIM AGAIN. PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO LOOK FORWARD TO READ THEIRING JUNK MAIL. I GET IT. WE’RE GOING TO GET THROUGH THIS, AS THE SUPERINTENDENT SAID. AND I’M HAPPY TO ANSWER — OR ANYONE HERE IS HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTION THAT YOU HAVE TOWARD THAT END. SO –>>THIS KIND OF GETS TO ENFORCEMENT WITH THE STAY AT HOME ORDER, GOVERNOR. COMMISSIONER COX TALKED ABOUT HOW THE HOTLINE IS FOR BUSINESSES, FOR EMPLOYERS. IF I’M AN EMPLOYEE OF A COMPANY THAT I DON’T THINK FALLS UNDER THOSE ESSENTIAL BUSINESS LISTS, BUT MY BOSS IS STILL MAKING ME COME IN, WHAT DO I DO, WHO DO I GO TO?>>ULTIMATELY YOU — AS HE SAID, YOU DO — THE FIRST CRACK IS TO GO TO YOUR EMPLOYER AND TRY TO WORK THIS OUT THE INDIANA WAY. IF THAT FAIL, YOU MIGHT SHARE THE DOCUMENTATION THAT YOU HAVE THAT WE’VE POSTED ONLINE THAT HE ALLUDED TO. CLEARLY ARTICULATED. AND IF IT PERSIST, IF IT REMAINS AN ISSUE, THEN OF COURSE WE’RE GOING TO WANT TO KNOW. BUT WE’RE GOING TO TRY TO RESOLVE IT AS WELL. THIS IS, AGAIN, THIS MEESH YOU ARE THAT WAS TAKEN YESTERDAY IS TO TRY TO GET US TO THE OTHER SIDE AS FAST AS WE CAN, WHILE WE’VE GOT THE TIME TO DO IT. AND THAT — WE’RE APPEALING — AND BY THE WAY, 99.99 PERCENT OF HOOSIERS OUT THERE ARE COMPLYING. WHAT THIS DID IS PUT EVERYONE ON THE SAME PAGE. AND HOPEFULLY CLARIFIED. AND I THINK EVERYONE SHARES — EVERYONE UNDER STANDS THE IMMENSE FINANCIAL HIT THE WORLD IS EXPERIENCING RIGHT NOW. CERTAINLY INDIANA IS KNOW EXCEPTION. BUT OUR INTENT — AND I THINK EVERYONE ELSE’S — IS TO GET THROUGH THIS RESPONSIBLY, CALMLY, AS QUICKLY AS WE CAN. AND SO FIRST GO TO YOUR EMPLOYER, DISCUSS IT WITH YOUR EMPLOYER, SHOW THEM WHAT YOU KNOW. IF THERE’S SOME MISUNDERSTANDING, AND IF THAT DOESN’T WORK, WE DO NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IT. AND WE’RE GOING TO TRY TO HELP RESOLVE IT AS WELL.>>PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS BEEN TALKING IN THE LAST FEW DAYS ABOUT STARTING THE ECONOMY BACK UP AND THAT THE CURE MIGHT BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM. WONDER WHAT YOUR THOUGHTS WERE ON THAT.>>WELL, I’M HOPEFUL TOO THAT WE CAN GET BACK TO BUSINESS AS USUAL AS FAST AS WE CAN. WE’VE — WE SET INTO MOTION A TWO-WEEK TIMELINE AND HERE IN INDIANA I’M GOING TO FOCUS ON THAT TWO-WEEK TIMELINE. WE’RE GOING TO BE MEASURING EVERY DAY. YOU CAN AS WELL. YOU CAN GO TO THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH’S WEBSITE AND TRACK AND SEE THE TREND. AND YOU CAN SEE HOW THIS IS COMPOUNDING. AND THE MORE NUMBERS THAT WE GET — AND BY THE WAY, YOU’RE GOING TO START TO SEE SOME RECOVERIES TOO WHEN WE HAVE THAT INFORMATION. BUT I’M GOING TO, NICKY, BE SOLELY FOCUSSED ON STEPS THAT INDIANA CAN TAKE OVER THE NEXT 14 DAYS. OF COURSE WE’RE GOING TO LEARN FROM OUR NEIGHBORING STATES AND THE COASTAL STATES WHERE THIS LACKED — CRASHED UPON THEIR SHORES FIRST. YOU THINK ABOUT A CITY LIKE NEW YORK CITY WITH A COUPLE MILLION MORE PEOPLE IN THEIR CITY AS OUR STATE. BUT THIS IS ALL RELATIVE WHEN YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT DENSITY. LOOK AT THE NUMBERS IN MARION COUNTY. LOOK AT HOW THEY’RE MULTIPLYING. THIS IS THE ISSUE THAT I JUST BRIEFLY MENTIONED YESTERDAY ABOUT ONE PERSON AFFECTS TWO OR TWO AND A HALF. FOLKS WHO MAY FEEL PERFECTLY HEALTHY AND READY TO GO, IF THEY’RE POSITIVE, IT’S LIKE A MAGNET. THEY’RE GOING TO ATTRACT A NEGATIVE. AND THEN THEY’RE GOING TO FLIP THEM TO POSITIVE. AND THEY’RE GOING TO FLIP TWO MORE TO POSITIVE. THAT’S WHY WE HAVE TO ISOLATE, TO SLOW THE SPREAD AND FLATTEN THAT CURVE. OR ELSE WE ARE GOING TO FIND OURSELVES IN A SITUATION, DARE I SAY — AND WE’RE NOT REMOTELY CLOSE TO THAT — ITALY. OR NEW YORK WHERE THEY’RE TAKING OVER A CENTER. WE ARE NOT THERE BECAUSE WE ARE TAKING SOME INNOVATIVE, BOLD STEPS. AND IT’S — WHAT’S GRATIFYING ABOUT IT IS IT’S THE INDIANA WAY. PEOPLE COMING TOGETHER. DIFFERENT LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT, DIFFERENT CITIES ALL OVER THE STATE OF INDIANA. WORKING TOGETHER. INCLUDING WITH OUR FEDERAL PARTNERS. AND IF I COULD JUST — BECAUSE YOU BROUGHT IT UP — IF I COULD SAY, IT IS… PAST TIME — AND I’M HEARTEN TODAY HEAR SOME PROGRESS MADE TODAY, BUT AMERICANS NEED HELP RIGHT NOW. AND I’M HOPEFUL AND — AND PROUD OF OUR CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION, FOR PUSHING — WE’VE BEEN IN CONSTANT CONTACT. I’M HOPEFUL THAT FOLKS IN WASHINGTON CAN PUT ASIDE THESE POLITICAL GAMES, LIKE WE HAVE HERE IN THE STATE OF INDIANA, AND GET HELP HERE NOW. WE NEED EACH OTHER. AB DUL.>>GOVERNOR, LAST WEEK WITH THE STATE IN PLACE ORDER, YOU SAID WE WEREN’T THERE YET. OBVIOUSLY THAT’S CHANGED, WHAT DO YOU, DR. BOX IN THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH SAY, SAY WE’RE NOW THERE?>>DR. BOX, YOU MAY WANT TO COMMENT ON THIS. I DIDN’T TAKE STATISTICS IN COLLEGE. STATISTICS TOOK ME. BUT I WILL TELL YOU THIS, THE NUMBERS DON’T LIE. AND IF THEY DON’T PUT A LITTLE FEAR OF GOD IN YOU TO ACT AND ACT NOW AND FIGHT BACK NOW, I DON’T KNOW WHAT WOULD. WE’RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO LOSE PEOPLE. AND WE KNOW WHAT THE TIMELINE HAS BEEN IN SOME — NOT JUST NEIGHBORING STATES BUT THE COASTAL STATES. AND SO NO ONE HAS A CRYSTAL BALL OF COURSE, BUT IF YOU LOOK OUT IN A TWO-WEEK INCREMENT, TWO WEEKS, FOUR WEEKS, SIX WEEK, EIGHT WEEK, ET CETERA, NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT YESTERDAY. DR. BOX, YOU WANT TO ADD…>>THANKS, GOVERNOR. WELL, I THINK YOU KNOW, WHEN WE LOOK AT MARION COUNTY, WHO HAS 161 CASES NOW, WE START TO LOOK AT CITIES AND OTHER AREAS OF THE UNITED STATES THAT ARE PROBABLY A COUPLE WEEKS AHEAD OF US, AND WE CAN SEE THAT THAT NEED FOR ICU BEDS AND VENTILATORS AND ALL THOSE OTHER THINGS INCREASES. OFTENTIMES BY ABOUT TWO TIMES THE AMOUNT THAT INDIVIDUAL CITIES HAVE. WE REALLY FELT THE STRONG NEED TO BE ABLE TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE DOING EVERYTHING IN OUR POWER TO DECREASE THE SPREAD FROM ONE INDIVIDUAL TO ANOTHER.>>GOVERNOR?>>YES.>>IN WAKE OF YESTERDAY’S EXECUTIVE ORDERS, WHAT DO YOU SEE AS THE ROLE OF THE FIVE LEADING MARION COUNTY HOSPITAL CHAINS IN THEIR MODEL, YOU’VE CALLED ON THEM TO SET FORTH THE COOPERATION FOR THE ENTIRE STATE OF INDIANA. WHAT’S DONE HERE, YOU EXPECTING IT’S GOING TO BE REPLICATED THROUGHOUT THE STATE?>>YES.>>OR THE REST OF THE STATE’S GOING TO COME THROUGH MARION COUNTY –>>NO, NO, NO. WE’RE GOING TO GO TO THEM. WE’RE ALREADY GOING TO THEM. THIS IS NOT A CENTRAL INDIANA — OR INDIANAPOLIS CENTRIC APPROACH. THIS APPROACH IS GOING TO WORK — AND I MENTIONED YESTERDAY, IN EVERY QUADRANT OF OUR STATE, IT NEEDS TO BE THERE. AND WE’RE BEING DRIVEN BY THE FACTS ON THE GROUND, OF COURSE. BUT THIS IS ABOUT NOT SPILLING RESOURCES, NOT WASTING TIME AND SPACE. THIS IS ABOUT CARING FOR THOSE THAT ARE IN NEED RIGHT NOW. IT’S GOING TO WORK HERE. AND IT WILL WORK IN NORTHWEST INDIANA, WORK IN SOUTHEAST, SOUTHWEST, AND NORTHEAST INDIANA.>>DO YOU FORESEE POTENTIAL OF EITHER THE MOST SERIOUSLY ILL PATIENTS FROM OUT STATE COMING TO INDIANAPOLIS FOR THE OVERFLOW FROM OUT OF THE STATE GOING TO INDIANAPOLIS, AS WE OBVIOUSLY HAVE MOST OF THE BEDS, ORP WE HAVE MANY BEDS?>>NOT AT THIS TIME.>>A QUESTION. SO I WOULD LIKE — [INAUDIBLE].>>DIDN’T GET THE QUESTION.>>I THINK THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION. IT’S ONE THAT WE’VE GRAPPLED WITH.>>CAN YOU REPEAT?>>SHE DIDN’T USE THIS WORD, BUT SHE SAID I’M SAYING TO DO ONE THING, RESTRICT A NUMBER OF PEOPLE, WHETHER IT BE A 50 OR 10, OR — NUMBER. AND WE’VE GOT MORE THAN THAT ASSEMBLED HERE TODAY. SO AM I PRACTICING WHAT I’M PREACHING. AND I’LL BE HONEST WITH YOU. I — I — WE HAVE ENCOURAGED FOLKS TO SOCIALLY DISTANCE. I… I’VE SAID 6 FEET BETWEEN ONE ANOTHER. AND I’M HESITANT, AS I HAVE SEEN AND HEARD AND READ ABOUT, KEEPING CLOSE CONTACT WITH DEMOCRAT GOVERNORS AND REPUBLICAN GOVERNORS ON A WEEKLY AND DAILY BASIS. DIFFERENT SETUPS. SOME HAVE DECIDED TO GO TO A MORE VIRTUAL APPROACH TO GET RIGHT AT YOUR CONCERN, THAT I SHARE. AND I DON’T WANT TO RESTRICT THE FOURTH ESTATE FROM HAVING ACCESS — WE’RE GOING TO BE TRANSPARENT FOR SURE, BUT I DON’T WANT TO RESTRICT THE FOURTH ESTATE FROM ASKING QUESTIONS THAT YOU’RE GETTING AS YOU SAID, ON TWITTER. I THINK YOUR EXAMPLE. FROM CONCERNED HOOSIERS. AND SO TO DATE — THIS IS UNDER CONSTANT DISCUSSION — BUT TO DATE WE HAVE TRIED TO SPREAD OUT. I ASK YOU TO SPREAD OUT. WE GOT A COUPLE MORE FLOORS WE COULD UTILIZE HERE. MAYBE I COULD POINT UP AND ASK DR. BOX TO GIVE THE NEXT REPORT ON THE THIRD FLOOR. BUT FOR THE TIME BEING WE’RE GOING TO ASK PEOPLE TO ASSEMBLE HERE. WHERE THE BUILDING IS CONFINED AND CONTROLLED. AND SPREAD OUT WHEN WE DO. YES.>>DR. BOX, YOU WERE TALKING EARLIER AND HAVE TALKED EARLIER ABOUT THE NUMBERS IN MARION COUNTY THAT ACCOUNT FOR CLOSE TO HALF OF ALL THE CONFIRMED CASES. WHAT’S GOING ON HERE? IS IT BECAUSE WE’RE OBVIOUSLY A BIGGER POPULATION, BUT WE’RE NOT HALF THE POPULATION OF THE STATE. ARE PEOPLE NOT FOLLOWING THE RULES, ARE PEOPLE PACKED TOO CLOSE TOGETHER. ARE WE DOING MORE TESTING? WHAT’S GOING ON.>>THIS IS TYPICAL OF WHAT YOU SEE AROUND THE WORLD AND WHAT WE’VE SEEN AROUND THE UNITED STATES, MAJOR METROPOLITAN AREAS SUFFER THE WORST FROM THIS. AND THAT’S PRETTY TYPICAL OF ANY OUTBREAK.>>SO I SHOULDN’T BE WORRIED.>>SIR?>>SO I SHOULDN’T WORRY BY THOSE NUMBERS>>I DON’T THINK YOU SHOULD WORRY, I THINK YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT WE’RE ADDRESSING IT. AND THAT’S WHY WE HAVE TAKEN THE ACTIONS THAT WE HAVE TO, TRY TO MAKE SURE INDIVIDUALS DO STAY IN THEIR HOMES. DOESN’T MEAN YOU CAN’T GET OUT AND TAKE A WALK. SOCIAL DISTANCE WITH THE PEOPLE WITH YOU. BUT DEFINITELY SPENDING YOUR TIME AT HOME.>>DR. BOX OR GOVERNOR, IS THERE TESTING AVAILABLE IN ALL INDIANA COUNTIES AT THIS TIME, AND IF THERE IS OR IS NOT, WILL WE SEE MORE POP-UP LOCATIONS FOR PEOPLE TO GET TESTING OUTSIDE OF HOSPITALS?>>YES, WE ARE SEEING TESTING AVAILABLE IN ALL PARTS OF OUR STATE. I KNOW THAT THERE ARE A COUPLE OF AREAS THAT WANTED TO DO THEIR OWN TESTING AND THAT HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO HAPPEN. AND SO WE ARE ACTUALLY REACHING OUT TO THEM, OFFERING TO HELP THEM WITH THEIR TESTING. PICK UP THEIR SPECIMENS, BRING THEM HERE SO WE CAN RUN THEM THROUGH LILLY AND IU’S LAB WITHIN A 24 HOUR PERIOD OF TIME. WE ARE SEEING INDIVIDUAL FACILITIES POP UP SO THAT WE CAN TEST THOSE HIGH-RISK POPULATIONS. THAT MAYBE DON’T NEED TO GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM, BUT IT IS CRITICAL THAT WE KNOW WHETHER THEY’RE SICK WITH COVID-19. AND WE — I’VE MENTIONED BEFORE WE HAVE STRIKE TEAMS THAT ARE LOCALIZED IN FIVE REGIONS ACROSS THE STATE THAT ARE COMPOSED OF OUR PEOPLE WHO ARE VOLUNTEERING FROM OUR ADVANCED PRACTICE RN’S, ALONG WITH OUR SURVEYORS FOR SMS FOR LONG-TERM CARE FACILITIES WHO CAN GO OUT INTO JAILS AND DOC OR DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS FACILITIES, LONG-TERM CARE FACILITIES, RESIDENT FACILITIES AND TEST PEOPLE IN THE FACILITY SO THEY DON’T HAVE TO COME TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM FOR THAT.>>YOU SAID ALL PARTS. IS THAT ALL PARTS OR COUNTIES?>>THAT IS AVAILABLE IN ALL COUNTIES TO THE STATE OF INDIANA.>>DR. BOX, YOU MADE MENTION EARLIER ABOUT TRYING TO GET FROM MEDIA A FEDERAL –>>STRATEGIC NATIONAL STOCKPILE?>>THE PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND OTHER THINGS FOR HERE IN INDIANA. WITH THE SURGE THAT’S ALREADY BEING SEEN FROM NEW ORLEANS TO NEW YORK CITY, IS THERE GOING TO BE THE EQUIPMENT YOU NEED WHEN YOU SEE THE SURGE IN INDIANA? ARE YOU SEEING THE SURGE OF PATIENTS BEING HOSPITALIZED NOW? WHAT’S THE STATUS OF THE HOSPITALS?>>SO WE DON’T REALLY FEEL THAT WE’RE SEEING NECESSARILY A SURGE OF PATIENTS RIGHT NOW. WE ARE FOLLOWING — AS WE ASK FOR INDIVIDUALS TO POSTPONE ELECTIVE SURGERIES, WE’VE SEEN A DECLINE IN SOME ADMISSIONS. WE ARE SEEING A LITTLE UPTICK OF EMS OF THOSE WHO HAVE RESPIRATORY INFLUENZA-LIKE ILLNESS IN THE LAST DAY OR SO. I CAN’T SAY THAT IN OUR HOSPITALS WE HAVE A HUGE SURGE BUT WE’RE CERTAINLY PREPARING FOR THAT.>>ARE YOU CONFIDENT YOU’LL BE ABLE TO GET THE EQUIPMENT YOU NEED WHEN NEW YORK AND NEW NEW ORLEANS ARE ALREADY PLEADING FOR MORE EQUIPMENT, OR IS THE EQUIPMENT SUFFICIENT>>WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO RECEIVE A PERCENTAGE OF WHAT INDIANA IS ALLOCATED ON OUR POPULATION, FROM THE STRATEGIC NATIONAL STOCKPILE AND BELIEVE WE’LL BE RECEIVING MORE WITHIN THE NEXT 24-48 HOURS. OUR HOPE IS WE’RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO RECEIVE SUPPLIES THROUGH FEMA. BUT INDIANA IS PRETTY HOME GROWN AND WE’RE FIGURING OUT WAYS AROUND THIS OURSELVES, MAKING SURE THAT WE ARE CONSERVING OUR SUPPLIES AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.>>THE HOMELESS SHELTER, WHERE –>>THAT IS SOMETHING THAT WE’RE NOT GOING TO RELEASE, THE SPECIFIC LOCATION OF THAT.>>GOVERNOR, I BELIEVE YOU HAVE THE TENANT-LANDLORD BILL, SAERNT BILL SITTING ON YOUR DESK. YOU GOING TO SIGN THAT?>>I WAS GOING TO SAY WE’RE GOING TO BE BACK HERE AT 2:30. I’VE GOT STRAGGLING BILLS OUTSTANDING THAT I STILL HAVE SOME QUESTIONS ON. THE REMAINING BALANCE. SO YOU’LL KNOW MORE SOON. I’VE GOT A DEADLINE TOMORROW.>>SO COMMISSIONER PAYNE TALKED ABOUT IF YOU’VE LOST YOUR JOB OR IF YOU’RE TEMPORARILY OUT OF WORK, FILE FOR UNEMPLOYMENT. THAT DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FOR THE SO-CALLED GIG ECONOMY WORKER, THE SELF EMPLOYED, INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR WHO IS HAVE NOWHERE TO TURN. WHAT ARE WE DOING FOR THOSE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF HOOSIERS?>>YOU’RE RIGHT AND YOU WILL HEAR MORE IN DETAIL FROM SECRETARY SHELLINGER. AND THIS IS SOMETHING WE’VE BEEN PRESSING ON, ON A MORE THAN DAILY BASIS WITH OUR FEDERAL PARTNERS AND THE CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION. I STILL NEED — TO BE HONEST WITH YOU, GO THROUGH LINE BY LINE WHAT’S ALL IN THAT BILL BECAUSE IT’S CHANGED SINCE YESTERDAY. BUT WE’RE VERY MINDFUL OF BOTH THE — THE BALANCE OF THE EMPLOYEE WHERE I HAVE SAID WE GOT TO GET THIS TO THE PEOPLE FIRST. CAN’T HAVE A CORPORATION UNLESS YOU HAVE THE PEOPLE. BUT WE ALSO HAVE TO ADDRESS STABILIZING AND CREATING THAT BRIDGE FOR THE EMPLOYER TO HAVE THAT BUSINESS IN TACT. SO WE’RE LOOKING AT BOTH. YOU’LL HEAR A LITTLE BIT MORE IN DETAIL TOMORROW FROM THE IEDC, HAS BASICALLY BEEN RETROFITTED OVER THE LAST 48-72 HOURS INTO BECOMING A CONCIERGE THAT’S DEALING WITH QUESTIONS JUST LIKE THIS. THIS IS WHY I SAID IT’S SO IMPORTANT THAT AS WE WENT INTO THIS, TALK ABOUT A TALE OF TWO CITY, THE BEFORE AND AFTER, WE SAILED INTO THIS WITH NORTH OF 2 BILLION DOLLARS IN OUR RESERVES, 13 PLUS PERCENT OF OUR ANNUAL OPERATING BUDGET IN RESERVES. AND THANKFULLY WE HAVE THAT. SO WE’RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO DO SOME THINGS THAT OTHER STATES WILL BE AT THE — AND ONLY THE MERCY OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO SEE THEM THROUGH. SO WE’LL HAVE SOME PROGRAMS TO HELP ENDS MEET. BUT WE DON’T WANT TO GET AHEAD OF OURSELVES IN TERMS OF WHAT WE’VE BEEN ASKING FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AS WELL.>>CAN YOU TALK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THE ENFORCEMENT OF THE STAY-AT-HOME ORDER FOR INDIVIDUALS AND BUSINESSES? WE’RE NOT GOING TO NECESSARILY BE PULLING PEOPLE OVER ON THEIR WAY HOME FROM WORK, BUT WE MAY STILL SEE BUSINESSES THAT ARE NONESSENTIAL STILL OPERATING. SO WHAT WERE THE CONSEQUENCES?>>WELL, THEY SHOULDN’T BE. AND WE’RE TRYING TO BE AS CLEAR AND BLUNT AND AS SERIOUS ABOUT THIS AS WE CAN. OUR INTENT — THIS IS NOT MEANT TO BE A HAMMER. THIS IS MEANT TO BE INSTRUCTIONAL. WE’RE ASKING FOR CITIZENS BUY-IN OVER THE NEXT TWO WEEKS. OF COURSE WE UNDERSTAND THAT WE HAVE THE AUTHORITY. BUT OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES ARE THERE TO ASSIST AND — AND OUR SUPERINTENDENT, DOUG CARTER’S POSITION TO SERVE AND PROTECT. AND SO — AND THEY’RE NOT GOING TO BE PULLING PEOPLE OVER GOING TO AND FROM WORK. IF WE GET INTO A SITUATION WHERE SOMEONE IS FLAUNTING, WE’LL HAVE TO ADDRESS THAT ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS. BUT THE POINT OF THIS ALL WAS TO SAY THE QUICKER WE ALL GET ON THE SAME PAGE, AND WE ALL START PLAYING OUR ROLE, THE QUICKER WE’RE GOING TO GET THROUGH AND WE’LL BECOME THE MODEL.>>HOW QUICKLY DO YOU THINK GENERAL MOTORS IS GOING TO GET IN BUSINESS, HOW GOOD OF A DEAL IS IT TO HAVE THIS HAPPENING IN INDIANA? HOW MUCH ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT?>>WITH THE VENTILATORS? DID YOU SAY GENERAL MOTORS? YEAH. YOU WANT TO TAKE –>>WE’RE VERY PLEASED TO HEAR ABOUT THE PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN GENERAL MOTORS AND THE OTHER COMPANY THAT’S DOING THIS. WE DON’T HAVE A SPECIFIC TIME FRAME FROM THEM YET ON THAT. BUT WE DO HAVE ACCESS TO OTHER VENTILATORS THAT ARE IN SURGERY CENTERS THAT ARE SITTING EMPTY NOW SINCE WE HAVE POSTPONED ELECTIVE SURGERIES. WE’RE ACCOUNTING FOR ALL OF THAT AS WE PLAN FOR OUR SEARCH.>>THERE’S A COMPANY IN EVANSVILLE THAT STEPPED UP YESTERDAY, AN ELECTRICIAN AND SAID VENTILATORS HAVE TO BE REPAIRED AND SERVICED ON TIME. AND FROM TIME TO TIME, AND THEY’RE HAPPY TO GIVE OF THEIR SERVICE WITH NO COMPENSATION. AND SO YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF WHETHER IT’S MASKS OR VENTILATOR, YOU NAME IT, GOWNS, FOLKS ARE — I SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT THAT HAND SANITIZER THAT I HAVE TWO BOXES OF NOW — OUT HERE. FOLKS ARE ADDRESSING THE NEEDS.>>I’M GOT — DR. BOX MENTIONED WE’RE AT THE LEVEL WHERE WE’RE KIND OF RATIONING WHO GETS WHAT TEST AND WHO DOESN’T. AT WHAT POINT WILL WE BE AT A SPOT WHEREVER SPOT WHEREV, EVERYONE CAN GET A TEST?>>IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT OTHER STATES ARE DOING, THEY’RE MOVING TOWARD DOING TARGETED TESTING JUST AS WE’VE BEEN DOING ALL ALONG. THAT IS SAYING THAT INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE SICK SHOULD STAY HOME. IF THEY’RE DOLL WELL, THEY DON’T NEED TO BE TESTED. IF THEY HAVE CONTACT WITH OUR HIGHEST RISK POPULATION, OR THEY ARE AT HIGH RISK THEMSELVES OR THEY GET MORE ILL AND NEED TO COME TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM, THEN TESTING IS INDICATED.>>WHAT’S THE RULE FOR CHILDREN? I’VE PERSONALLY HEARD FROM SOMEONE WHO HAD A CHILD THIS WEEKEND WHO HAD A 103 FEVER, WASN’T DOING GOOD, TESTED FOR PNEUMONIA, TESTED FOR THE FLU BUT COULDN’T GET A CORONAVIRUS TEST. WHAT ARE THE PARAMETERS?>>I CAN TELL YOU IF THAT INDIVIDUAL PRESENTED TO AN EMERGENCY ROOM AND WAS ILL IN AND THAT PHYSICIAN FELT THAT WAS INDICATED, THAT THAT’S APPROPRIATE. WE SAID VERY CLEARLY WE NEED OUR CLINICIANS TO USE THEIR GOOD CLINICAL JUDGMENT.>>LASTLY, AS THIS WAS COMING ACROSS, IT WAS ORIGINALLY SAID THAT THIS WAS SOMETHING THAT WOULD AFFECT THE OLDER POPULATION HARDER. AND IT SEEMS AS THIS GETS CLOSER, IT’S GETTING YOUNGER AND YOUNGER PEOPLE AFFECTED. IS THAT THE CASE?>>I THINK AS WE GET MORE AND MORE PEOPLE AFFECTED, WE WILL HAVE MORE AND MORE PEOPLE SICK IN ALL OF OUR AGE GROUPS. THE SEVERITY OF ILLNESS, IF IT FOLLOWS THE SAME PATH, WHICH IT APPEARS TO BE AS OTHER COUNTRIES AND AS OTHER PLACES IN THE UNITED STATES, WILL BE ON THOSE INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE USUALLY OVER THE AGE OF 60 WITH OTHER CHRONIC CONDITIONS.>>WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO PEOPLE WHO ARE YOUNGER WHO FEEL INVINCIBLE RIGHT NOW BECAUSE THEY HAVEN’T HEARD WHAT YOU JUST SAID?>>SO THEY MAY BE INVENSABLE. WE CAN’T PREDICT. THERE ARE ALWAYS WITH ANY DISEASE OUTBREAKS INDIVIDUALS WHO WILL SUCCUMB TO AN ILLNESS OR BECOME CRITICALLY ILL. AND WE WON’T UNDERSTAND WHY THEY WOULD HAVE MORE PROBLEM THAN ANOTHER ONE. WHEN YOU FEEL INVINCIBLE, YOU’RE NOT REALLY PAYING ATTENTION TO THE FACT THAT YOU COULD BE INFECTING SOMEONE ELSE WHO ISN’T.>>YEAH, I WOULD JUST ADD THAT IF IT DOESN’T KNOCK YOU DOWN, THAT’S NOT THE POINT. YOU MAY GO RUN INTO SOMEONE THAT IT WILL KNOCK DOWN. AND YOU’LL PASS IT ON. AND SO IT DOES AFFECT YOU. IT AFFECTS US ALL. THAT’S THE WHOLE POINT OF SELF ISOLATION. TO FLATTEN THAT CURVE SO OUR HEALTHCARE SYSTEM ISN’T OVERWHELMED. ABDUL?>>I’VE BEEN HEARING FROM A NUMBER OF BUSINESSES THAT SAY BECAUSE OF THE COVID-19 THAT THEY’VE APPLIED WITH THEIR INSURANCE COMPANIES TO TAKE THAT TEMPORARY BUSINESS LOSS. THEY ARE HAE HEARING THAT THIS MAY NOT BE COVERED AND THEIR POLICIES — HAVE YOU GIVEN ANY DIRECTIONS OR INSTRUCTIONS –>>YEP. THEY SHOULD BE TALKING DIRECTLY TO — WHICH PROBABLY WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE STEVE ROBERTSON AT THE DEPARTMENT OF INSURANCE HERE. HE’S IN CONSTANT COMMUNICATION WITH BUSINESSES ALL OVER THE STATE OF INDIANA. TO ADDRESS ON ONE-ON-ONE BASIS. THOSE EXACT CONCERNS. THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH. SAME TIME, SAME CHANNEL, SAME PLACE. UNLESS IT CHANGES. AND NOW SHE’S — YOU’VE CHANGED SEATS.>>I WAS GOING TO ASK DR. BOX A QUESTION. SORRY, DR. BOX. NOW YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO FOR A WALK. CAN YOU TELL US ANYTHING ABOUT WHAT PERCENTAGES OF CASES THAT WE’RE SEEING ARE HOSPITALIZED AND WHAT PERCENTAGE OF THE CASES THAT WE’RE SEEING ARE IN HEALTHCARE WORKERS?>>SO I DON’T, UNFORTUNATELY, HAVE THAT INFORMATION, SHERI. THERE IS A THING CALLED AN ICD 10 CODE WHICH IS HOW HOSPITALS WILL CODE PARTICULAR ILLNESSES OR DISEASES. AND THAT HAS NOT BEEN IMPLEMENTED IN THE EHR, THE ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORD SYSTEMS YET. AND I’M EXPECTING THAT ABOUT APRIL 1ST. THAT IS GOING TO GIVE US A MUCH BETTER WAY THROUGH OUR OUTLETS WITH IHI, AND WE CAN PULL THAT DATA AND THEN BE ABLE TO REPORT ON THAT DATA ON A REGULAR BASIS FOR YOU. IT WILL ALSO ALLOW US TO REPORT ON WHAT OTHER CO-MORBIDITIES OR CHRONIC DISEASES THESE INDIVIDUALS HAD.>>THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU ALL.>>WELL, FOR THE LAST 55 MINUTES WE’VE BEEN HEARING FROM INDIANA GOVERNOR ERIC HOLCOMB AND STATE LEADERS ABOUT MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE STAY-AT-HOME ORDER AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR BUSINESSES IN THE STATE AND ALSO FOR RESIDENTS. PERHAPS THE BIGGEST NEWS WE LEARNED THIS AFTERNOON IS THEY ARE SETTING UP A SEPARATE FACILITY TO CARE FOR HEALTHCARE WORKERS THAT THERE HAS BEEN A BIG NUMBER OF CALLS, A LARGE NUMBER OF CALLS FOR PEOPLE THAT ARE INTERESTED IN UNEMPLOYMENT. WE WERE TOLD THAT IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT YOU QUALIFY, JUST APPLY. ALSO WE ARE TOLD THAT TOMORROW, THE GOVERNOR WILL RETURN AT 2:30 AT THE STATEHOUSE AND SPEAK AS WELL. AND THAT AT THAT TIME AT 2:30 HE WILL HAVE INDIANA SECRETARY OF COMMERCE AND THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR OF INDIANA TALKING ABOUT THE ECONOMY AND SOME ECONOMIC RAMIFICATIONS OF THIS PANDEMIC THAT EVERYONE IS DEALING WITH RIGHT NOW. WE’RE GOING TO WRAP UP ALL THIS INFORMATION AND PROVIDE YOU DETAILS NOT ONLY ON OUR WEBSITE BUT ALSO WHEN OUR NEWS BEGINS AT 5:00.
