Indiana Governor Pauses Reopening Plan as COVID Cases Continue to Spike in Parts of the State


STATEWIDE -- Indiana will stay at stage 4.5 of the governor’s reopening plan for, at least, another month.

The pause will go through, at least, August 27th.

The governor’s decision to pause his own reopening plan comes as the state’s positivity rate has risen to 8.9%.

Holcomb says if you're behind on rent or mortgage payments, he's extending the no eviction or foreclosure date through Aug. 14.

The Indiana State Department of Health said Thursday 630 more Hoosiers tested positive for the coronavirus, out of 7,464 new tests reported, meaning 8.4% came back positive, about a half-percent lower rate than Tuesday. 2,733 Hoosiers have died from the coronavirus -- eight more reported than Tuesday.
