  • 4/7/2020 The numbers just keep climbing.
    Hamilton County skyrocketed from 220 confirmed cases of the coronavirus COVID-19 in the county to 335 in just a few days. If there is a silver lining, it’s that the 52 percent increase in cases did not also result in a significant increase in the number of fatalities. While the cases shot up, deaths rose from four to five.
  • 4/4/2020 Confirmed cases of the coronavirus COVID-19 in Hamilton County continue to rise. From yesterday’s report to today’s, the count went from 207 to 220. The good news is that there were no new fatalities reported so the county is still the same with four adults who have lost their lives to this pandemic.
    In the county, there have been 682 tests.
  • 4/3/2020 The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) will offer some relief to small businesses in Indiana as it launches on Friday, April 3. Indiana bankers ask for patience from the public as the program begins.
    Application volume will be very high as the financial institutions qualified to offer these loans will strive to keep up with demand.
    “Sheer volume won’t be the only reason the program will take time,” said Indiana Bankers Association president and CEO Amber Van Til. “Financial institutions are in the process of reviewing guidance released late Thursday evening from federal agencies and regulators as they prepare to counsel their customers on the Paycheck Protection Program. Even with the latest guidance, the emergency program remains unclear with less than 12 hours before the program is scheduled to begin. The lender agreement and lender application for guarantee forms have not yet been released resulting in an inability for banks to process applications. Banks are here to help. Once the appropriate SBA government forms and processes become available, your Indiana banks stand ready to serve their customers and communities.”
  • 4/2/2020 While growth in Hamilton County is nothing new, Thursday afternoon saw not only the count on confirmed coronavirus COVID-19 grow but also the continued closure of schools for the remainder of this academic year as well as the cancellation of the high school spring sports.
    For decades, Hamilton County has been a statistical leader in Indiana for a great many positive things – growth, population, economic development and so on.
    During the coronavirus pandemic, the county is among the leaders in the state in a category no one wants to be associated with, confirmed coronavirus cases.
    Marion County has, by far, the most confirmed cases at 1,304 – nearly 43 percent of the state’s total. Lake and Hamilton counties are second and third respectively with 215 and 207. Johnson County is a distant fourth with 126.
    Indiana has 78 recorded deaths from the virus so far and four of those have occurred in Hamilton County. Four adults lost their lives, the county Health Department reported Wednesday.
  • 4/1/2020 The Hamilton County Health Department, in consultation with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH), has confirmed the first four fatal cases of COVID-19 of county residents. The health department will not be providing any further information on these cases out of respect for the family’s privacy.The Hamilton County Health Department will continue to work with CDC, ISDH, the Hamilton County
    Coroner, and county partners to safeguard the residents of Hamilton County. These efforts include conducting risk assessments with partners, educating the public, and providing recommendations on mitigation strategies.
    “Loss of life is always unfortunate," Dr. Charles Harris, Hamilton County Health Officer, said. "We will continue to make every effort possible to minimize the risk to the public. Please follow the directives of local, state, and federal officials. Unless it is absolutely necessary, travel should be limited, the best way to combat COVID-19 is to practice good social distancing and use good hygiene and cleaning practices .”
