Governor Eric J. Holcomb delivered a statewide address today to order that Hoosiers remain in their homes except when they are at work or for permitted activities, such as taking care of others, obtaining necessary supplies, and for health and safety.

More of our Midwest peer institutions have shut down research this past week (some given just two-day notice) and, as you are probably aware, both Illinois and Ohio are under orders to shelter at home (Ohio’s order starts tonight). If groups haven’t already done so, there should be detailed conversations about what research activities can be done remotely happening now. Several groups in the department have already undergone a volunteer shutdown. This option should be considered, and I learned this weekend (unofficially) that the College will be sending a message sometime this week encouraging it.

Be sure to stay informed by checking IU email daily as well as the following informational websites.
