Holcomb's One Indiana, On the Campaign Trail

How to Stay Healthy

Across the state, Hoosiers are all in this together — making changes as we work to slow the spread of the coronavirus, or COVID-19. It’s all about keeping Hoosiers safe…especially our most vulnerable Hoosiers (and “flattening  the curve,” as the experts say). 

Governor Holcomb — working continuously with the Indiana State Department of Health, top medical professionals from across the state and nation, and local, state and federal partners that are working together on this — wanted us to share a few guidelines with you in this week’s One Indiana to help you stay healthy during this global pandemic.

  • Take more time at home
    • Following Governor Holcomb & the CDC’s directive, gatherings of 50 or more Hoosiers should be postponed. 
    • If possible, work from home — and consider videoconferencing for meetings.
    • If you have to be out, practice safe social distancing.
  • Say hello with an elbow bump instead of a handshake
  • Wash your hands!
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Make sure to disinfect and clean all frequently touched surfaces — phones, keyboards, light switches, doorknobs, etc.
  • If you’re sick, stay home.
    • Call ahead before visiting your doctor.
    • Seek medical attention if your condition worsens.

As Governor Holcomb said, it’ll take all of us — all of us — each doing our part to keep Hoosiers healthy and safe during this outbreak.
