Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb announced in a public address this week that he will end the state’s mask mandate and gathering restrictions — but not until April 6. According to Holcomb, the chosen date will allow the state to get through the NCAA men’s basketball championship the night before and will allow more time for Hoosiers to get vaccinated.
Holcomb added, however, that he will renew his public health emergency declaration – originally set to expire next Wednesday – through the end of April, in the event of a renewed surge of infections.
COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations have dropped 80-percent in three months.
IndyPolitics.org’s Abdul-Hakim Shabazz told the Hammer and Nigel show that the Governor is just “following the science,” prompting WIBC host Jason Hammer to go on the offensive and note that Holcomb has repeatedly gone back on his word and moved the goalposts for when Hoosier residents and business can get “back to normal.”
