Indiana was set to enter Stage 5 of their reopening plan on Friday.  That was until the state saw an increase in cases and hospitalizations across the state.

Govenor Eric Holcomb announced on Wednesday the state would pause at “Stage 4.5” which will keep its capacity limits in place.  At currently a 250-person limit is instituted on social gatherings in the state of Indiana.

It also puts a stop to an increase in capacity at bars and restaurants.

On Wednesday, Indiana saw 371 new cases and eight deaths from COVID-19.

“Much will stay the same over the next two weeks,” Holcomb said. “We just have to accept the fact that this virus is on the prow, and it’s moving.” Restrictions for outdoor activities will be lifted in Indiana beginning Saturday. “We are not just asking, we’re recommending in the strongest terms possible that you think about not just your own life, but you think about those who you love,” Holcomb stressed.

Holcomb said the state will continue to look at changes over the next week, with plans to move into Stage 5 on July 18.
