INDIANAPOLIS— Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb on Friday said he is extending the current stay-at-home order by an additional two weeks.
The governor will sign an executive order to extend the stay-at-home order through April 20 on Monday.
Holcomb also extended the public health emergency through May 3. It was first declared on March 6.
The stay-at-home order applies to residents as well as all non-essential businesses.
Holcomb also said that President Donald Trump has approved his request to declare a major disaster declaration for all 92 counties in Indiana.
The major disaster declaration from the president will provide funds to help communities recover from COVID-19. Funding can be used for crisis counseling, food programs, temporary shelters, protective equipment, safety resources, and personnel.
During the coming weekend, the Indiana National Guard, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Indiana State Department of Health will scout locations around the state for potential alternative care sites.
