INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb has extended COVID-19 executive orders through November but suggested they might be scaled back by December.

Holcomb added a provision that says the health commissioner can authorize vaccinations in children under 11 when the federal government makes younger kids eligible.

The orders further extend an easing of certain licensing rules for people in the medical profession.

Some provisions were removed, including a directive for hospitals to consider postponing non-emergency procedures.

“While I am extending the state public health emergency for this next month to extend these critical capabilities directly tied to it, I have instructed my staff and the relevant agencies over the next few weeks to bring me a plan that contemplates options to wind down our executive orders and end the state public health emergency in the near future,” Holcomb said.

More than 3.36 million Indiana residents are fully vaccinated, according to the health department.

  1. Does tyrant Holcomb realize NO ONE is following his illegal and unconstitutional orders? NO ONE! The very first axiom of politics is once power is gained one does all to keep it. He’ll try to go to DC next. he will fit right in there. he can brag all he wants about the Covid shot but it doesn’t work long term. The numbers show that many of the new cases have 2 or more shots. Plus in 2020 there was no increase in over all deaths despite the inflated Covid numbers out there. It isn’t a vaccine it is no better than the flu shot.

    • You are 110% right. We are doing all of this for something that has a lower death rate than the flu. It’s all political and Holcomb is a non-backboned RINO.
