I have GREAT NEWS!!!

Congress just passed an extension of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) that allows small businesses and eligible non-profits to apply for PPP loans through May 31st. 
To learn more, visit these additional resources from CO— and the U.S. Chamber:
  • Read up on how to obtain a PPP loan.
  • Visit this COVID resources page from CO—.
As of March 31, 2021, all Hoosiers age 16+ years qualify for the COVID-19 vaccine, says Governor Holcomb. To register, go to or call 211.
As of April 6, mask wearing is only a recommendation not a mandate. Local businesses and local governments may set stricter rules and may still require masking. Masks are still required in a few places: K-12 schools, vaccination sites, COVID-19 test sites and state buildings.

Local governments, private businesses and other entities may institute more stringent guidelines. The Indiana Department of Health will continue to provide county level, color coded metrics to provide easy to understand information about whether virus levels are increasing or decreasing locally.

The state public health emergency will be renewed for another 30 days, beginning April 1. This declaration allows the state to act quickly if conditions take a turn for the worse and allows the state to continue to access hundreds of millions of federal dollars to support Hoosiers recovering from the impacts of the pandemic.

On March 30th we celebrate National Doctors’ Day. This is a wonderful opportunity to show gratitude to our physicians for their tireless and unwavering commitment. Our hospital and community are blessed beyond measure to have such a large group of talented physicians caring for our community each and every day - but especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Therefore, we invite you to honor your favorite physician(s) by making a charitable gift to the Margaret Mary Health Foundation this Doctors' Day. By making a donation in your doctor's honor, you will support programs, services and initiatives at Margaret Mary Health – the place where physicians touch, improve and save lives. These heroes deserve our encouragement and gratitude now more than ever.

When you make a tribute gift honoring your physician, he or she will receive a special acknowledgment from the Foundation that includes your name and any words of gratitude you may want to share. 

While Doctor’s Day is March 30, there is no deadline for this tribute – any day is a great day to say thank you! All donations are tax-deductible to the extent of the law.
Please join us in recognizing an outstanding doctor by making a gift in their honor today!

Education Info
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

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.
