Both Ripley and Franklin Counties are in the “Orange” color status on the weekly county Covid-19 metric update. If a county maintains a lower status for 2 weeks in a row, the restrictions in place can be lowered to that category per Governor Eric Holcomb’s order. If each county maintains or lowers its respective metric, restrictions could be lowered to the “Orange” status by December 16th, 2020.

Also, Statewide — CDC and other scientists have explored changing the current recommendation to quarantine for 14 days after last exposure. Reducing the length of quarantine may make it easier for people to quarantine by reducing economic hardship if they cannot work during this time. In addition, a shorter quarantine period can lessen stress on the public health system, especially when new infections are rapidly rising.

CDC now recommends two additional options for how long quarantine should last. Based on the local availability of viral testing, for people without symptoms quarantine can end:
• On day 10 if a person has not had a Covid-19 test and as long as no symptoms have developed
• On day 7 if the person has tested negative for Covid-19 test on day 5, 6, or 7 and no symptoms have developed.

Dr. Kristina Box with the Indiana Department of Health stated that both alternative options require that the person adheres to masking, social distancing, hand washing, and watching for any symptoms through day 14.

Stay safe,

Tricia Miller
Executive Director

COVID-19 INDIANA - COUNTY GUIDELINES BY COLORED
The Indiana Department of Health has established a color-coded county map that measures weekly cases per 100,000 residents and the 7-day positivity rate for all tests completed. Each county is assigned a color based on the average of scores for the two metrics, and the map is updated each Wednesday at www.coronavirus.in.gov.

The Indiana Department of Health has provided the following guidelines to inform local decision-making. The guidelines should be used when counties are in yellow, orange or red status for at least 14 days. The state health commissioner may impose actions when a county is in red status for at least 14 days.

Communities should use the County Metrics Map to make decisions about their businesses, community and social activities.

HILLROM - EMPLOYEES NEEDED

Our Batesville plant has a need to fill positions very quickly (all shifts).  I’m hoping this need will also be able to serve any labor gaps within the surrounding areas if there are production suspensions, reductions, etc from other manufacturing companies, and this will allow for openings to be filled by those who have been displaced.

These roles are/will be posted on our hillrom.com careers site for applicants to apply and be considered immediately.
