Holcomb Relaxes Some Restrictions

Indiana’s governor is easing restrictions on hospitals from performing elective surgeries, even as the state health commissioner remains concerned over whether coronavirus infections are slowing in the state. Gov. Eric Holcomb says while he was extending the statewide stay-at-home order until May 1, hospitals would be allowed to resume procedures to diagnose and treat medical conditions, such as cancer and heart troubles. A halt to elective procedures had been ordered last month to help preserve hospital equipment and protective gear, if needed, to treat people seriously ill with COVID-19.
