CHICAGO (CBS) - Saying Indiana is ready to move ahead in a measured way, Gov. Eric Holcomb said the state will begin easing the restrictions of its stay-at-home order for most of the state starting Monday.
Calling the COVID-19 outbreak a very challenging time for Hoosiers, Holcomb said the state will take a five-step approach to reopening by Independence Day.
We are doing this together, and together we will overcome this disease, and come out a stronger Indiana, Holcomb said.
The first stage was the stay-at-home order that has been in place the last few weeks, to help make sure hospitals did not become overwhelmed with virus patients, according to Holcomb
Holcomb said the second stage will begin Monday for all but three counties in Indiana. Beginning May 4, the state will begin lifting essential travel restrictions, and allow for social gatherings of up to 25 people.

Gov. Inslee of WA is keeping the state locked down until the end of May. Will let private construction. My county had no deaths.
Oh thank you, Massah!
JULY? WTF JULY!?
They will make up an excuse to keep this going.
lol July 4th. This guy is a moron.
Gov of Nebraska had an excellent analogy between speed limits and covid-19.
He said, we do not reduce speed limits down to 5 mph, although that would save 35,000 lives every year. We keep the speed limits at optimum levels so the benefits outweigh the penalties.
Ditto with covid-19. There is an optimum method of operation where benefits of opening economy outweighs the penalties.
