UPDATE: Indiana bars, restaurants ordered to close 'as soon as feasibly reasonable' amid COVID-19 outbreak
Gov. Eric Holcomb signs an executive order declaring a state public health emergency Friday after an adult male in Indianapolis tested positive for coronavirus.
Establishments will be required to close to in-person patrons, but may provide takeout and delivery services through the end of March, according to a statement released Monday from Holcomb's office.
Under the current guidance for schools, public school districts are closed, using e-Learning days.
Hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers should cancel and/or postpone elective and non-urgent surgical procedures immediately. This action will help the health care system conserve resources and personnel necessary to meet emerging health needs, Holcomb said in a statement.
