“I cannot stress this enough – if you are ill, stay home. If you need to seek medical care, call ahead so that your healthcare provider can take steps to protect others from exposure to COVID-19,” said State Health Commissioner Kris Box, M.D., FACOG. “We all have a role to play to protect Hoosiers from this illness, and the time to act is now.”

COVID-19 is a respiratory illness caused by a novel or new, coronavirus that has not been previously identified. It is not the same as the type of coronavirus that causes the common cold. To date, 24 Hoosiers across 13 counties have received presumptive positive tests for COVID-19. All but one are adults.

Human coronaviruses most commonly spread from an infected person to others through:

Respiratory droplets released into the air by coughing and sneezing;
Close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands;
Touching an object or surface with the virus on it and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes before washing your hands; and
Rarely, fecal contamination.
Many people who acquire COVID-19 will have mild symptoms, can self-isolate and do not need to be tested. Older individuals and those with underlying medical conditions are at higher risk for severe illness.

The best ways to protect yourself are to wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoid touching your face with unwashed hands, avoid close contact with people who are sick, stay home when you’re sick, cover your cough or sneeze and clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

The CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19. You should only wear a mask if a healthcare professional recommends it. A facemask should be used by people who have COVID-19 and are showing symptoms to protect others from the risk of infection.

MONDAY (March 16, 2020):

The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) today reported five new presumptive positive cases of COVID-19, bringing to 24 the number of Hoosiers diagnosed through ISDH, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and private laboratories.

About COVID-19

COVID-19 is a respiratory illness caused by a novel, or new, coronavirus that has not been previously identified.

Respiratory droplets released into the air by coughing and sneezing;
Close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands;
Touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes before washing your hands; and

THURSDAY (March 12, 2020):

The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) has updated the number of COVID-19 cases to reflect two additional presumptive positive cases in the state.

The patients reside in St. Joseph and Marion counties and are adults. The results include tests performed both at ISDH, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and through a private laboratory and bring to 12 the number of Hoosiers who have tested positive for COVID-19.

ISDH said that additional updates on the state’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak will be provided later in the day.

WEDNESDAY (March 11, 2020): 

The coronavirus count in Indiana continues to grow. The state yesterday confirmed two new cases, including one in Adams County and someone who works at Eli Lilly in Indianapolis. The State Department of Health is urging people to take basic hygiene seriously and to avoid crowds if they are already sick or would have trouble handling a respiratory infection.

Shortly after 10 a.m. Wednesday, the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) updated its COVID-19 online dashboard to reflect four additional presumptive positive cases. The patients reside in Howard and Johnson counties and are all adults. This brings to 10 the number of Hoosiers who have tested positive for COVID-19.

Other developments:
The ISDH call center has received nearly 900 calls since March 6 from healthcare providers and the public. The call center is staffed 24/7. From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., call 317-233-7125. Calls after 8 p.m. should go to 317-233-1325 and will be answered by an on-call epidemiologist. The primary purpose of the call center is to provide guidance from the CDC to healthcare providers and the public. Call center staff will not offer personal medical advice. If you are sick, consult with your healthcare provider.

ISDH has created a dashboard showing the number of presumptive positive cases in Indiana and the number of tests performed. The dashboard is located on the ISDH COVID-19 website and will be updated at 10 a.m. daily.

The CDC and U.S. State Department have advised travelers, especially those with underlying medical conditions, to avoid getting on cruise ships.

The number of subscribers to the COVID-19 website has increased to more than 7,600. Hoosiers are encouraged to continue to sign up to receive alerts and the latest updated guidance as the outbreak evolves.

ISDH recommends that nursing homes follow the latest guidance from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Updated guidance can be found here.

ISDH has updated its new COVID-19 online dashboard to reflect two additional presumptive positive cases. The patients reside in Adams and Boone counties.

The dashboard can be found here and will be updated daily at 10 a.m. and will reflect results received through midnight.

MONDAY (March 9, 2020):

The first case of coronavirus is in northeast Indiana.  The patient was found to have COVID-19 when at Parkview Noble Hospital in Kendallville. Noble County’s health officer says they received results of the patient’s test were received Sunday night.
The 54-year-old man also reportedly visited a walk-in clinic in Fort Wayne before being treated in Noble County.

Meanwhile, a Northrop teacher who lives with someone under quarantine has been asked to stay at home.
District leaders are meeting Tuesday morning to discuss any further measures.
The Allen County Health Department is expected to update the media Tuesday afternoon about ongoing steps being taken.

The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) says that as of 4 p.m. Monday this is what they are dealing with:

ISDH has confirmed four presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 since Friday, March 6.
Three patients are adults.
One patient is a juvenile.
The individuals reside in Marion, Hendricks and Noble counties.
The Marion and Hendricks County patients are self-isolating. The Noble County patient is currently hospitalized.

In total, ISDH has tested 32 individuals, including 3 individuals whose tests were sent to the CDC.
Two adult patients have a recent history of travel to business events where transmission of COVID-19 has occurred. The third adult patient also has a reported history of travel.

In connection with these specific cases, ISDH is working closely with health officials in all three counties, the Avon Community School Corp. and the Indiana Department of Education to ensure infection control protocols are in place and make the best determinations to reduce further transmission of COVID-19.

The spread of COVID-19 in Indiana is shifting to community transmission, as expected. The best ways to protect yourself are to wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoid touching your face with unwashed hands, avoid close contact with people who are sick, stay home when you’re sick, cover your cough or sneeze and clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
High-risk populations, such as elderly residents or people with weakened immune systems, should consider whether they need to socially distance themselves.
Avon Community Schools has decided to close all its schools through March 20.
ISDH is recommending long-term care facilities and hospitals to review their visitation policies.
ISDH recommends that nursing homes follow the latest guidance from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Many hospitals have visitor restrictions in place due to influenza. ISDH recommends hospitals continue to monitor the situation and revise those policies as appropriate.

Indiana State Health Commissioner Dr. Kris Box, M.D., FACOG, and Indiana Department of Homeland Security Director Stephen Cox will begin meeting with Indiana’s 10 public health preparedness districts this week to review strategies and engage in person with local emergency management services, hospitals, county health departments and emergency management agencies.
The State has upgraded its Emergency Operations Center to a Level 3 to allow for more coordination among state agencies.
The ISDH call center for healthcare providers and members of the public who have concerns about COVID-19 will be staffed 24 hours a day at 317-233-7125.

While the call center is now staffed 24/7, the public is asked to use the ISDH COVID-19 website, the CDC website or contact their healthcare provider with questions or to learn the most up-to-date information about the outbreak and what steps to take. Questions about symptoms and many risk factors, as well as guidance on travel, can be answered using the websites, which will leave the call center lines open to take calls from healthcare providers or others regarding the most ill patients.
The ISDH Laboratories follow CDC guidance on which patients to test. Patients who do not meet those guidelines can ask their healthcare providers about being tested by a private lab.

ISDH encourages providers to use private labs that have come on line for lower-risk patients to allow the ISDH lab to focus on those at highest risk and those who are more severely ill.
If you suspect you have COVID-19 but have mild symptoms, you are asked to stay home and consult with your healthcare provider.
All confirmed COVID-19 patients are required to remain in isolation until specimens taken on two consecutive days test negative for COVID-19. Individuals who have recently visited an area under a Level 3 travel warning also are asked to self-isolate for 14 days and notify their local health department or a healthcare provider if they develop symptoms of COVID-19, which include cough, fever and shortness of breath.
