Holcomb to Give Update on COVID-19 Response
Governor Eric Holcomb will this afternoon address the state regarding efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19. Specific details on what will be announced were not released.
The address comes less than a week after Holcomb updated actions in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The governor signed executive orders to extend school closures until at least May 1 and expand unemployment insurance benefits, among other actions.
