Indianapolis Mayor Mandates Face Coverings Beginning July 9 and Announces Modifications to State’s Back on Track Plan
 
Indianapolis Mayor, Joe Hogsett, and the Marion County Public Health Director, Dr. Virginia Caine, announced the latest COVID-19 restrictions for Marion County including a mandatory mask order starting July 9.
 
"This pandemic has not gone away," Hogsett said. "And across the country, we are seeing examples of what can happen when a city lets its guard down."
 
Also starting July 9, Marion County will be adopting most of what Governor Holcomb announced Wednesday as stage 4.5 of Indiana's "Back on Track" plan.
 
Differences between Marion County's plan and the state's plan are:
 

  • Indoor areas of assisted living and nursing home facilities will remain closed to visitors
  • Overnight camps will remain closed
  • Any event anticipating attendance over 1,000 people has to submit a public health plan and receive approval from the Marion Co. Health Department

 
Mayor Hogsett will sign an executive order to extend temporary street closures on Broad Ripple Ave., Mass Ave., and Georgia Street through Sunday, July 19.
 
Marion Co. Public Health Dept. will require face coverings for all residents out in public.
 
Mayor Hogsett says you are outside your home or in a public place, masks will be required — this includes retail and office buildings.
 
Dr. Virginia Caine says they have seen a shift in the age group that is now contracting the virus, as well. When the pandemic first began, roughly 65% of all cases were under the age of 60. In recent weeks that number has now shifted to over 85% of all cases.
 
She says at least 50% of the COVID-19 cases in Marion County are now under the age of 40.
 
"We are seeing a younger age population now contracting this COVID-19 cases," Caine said.

Governor Announces Modifications to State’s Back on Track Plan, Stage 4.5
 
Governor Eric J. Holcomb announced the state will modify the Back On Track Indiana plan through at least July 17.
 
While a few restrictions will lift on July 4 in version 4.5 of the plan, most will stay in place. Elkhart County will remain fully in Stage 4 until at least July 17. Local governments may impose more restrictive guidelines.
 
“While most of our health indicators remain positive, our data indicates a need to be extra cautious, which is why we will pause much of our Back on Track roadmap,” Gov. Holcomb said. “I urge Hoosiers to maintain vigilance in social distancing and wearing masks so we can continue to reopen our state for business.”
 
Gov. Holcomb has used data to drive decisions since the state’s first case of the novel coronavirus in early March and he continues to do so as the state continues a sector-by-sector reset. The state will move to reopen while continuing to monitor and respond to these four guiding principles:

  • The number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients statewide has decreased for 14 days
  • The state retains its surge capacity for critical care beds and ventilators
  • The state retains its ability to test all Hoosiers who are COVID-19 symptomatic as well as health care workers, first responders, and frontline employees
  • Health officials have systems in place to contact all individuals who test positive for COVID-19 and expand contact tracing

 
Through at least July 17, the following restrictions will continue:
 

  • Social gatherings following the CDC’s social distancing guidelines will be limited to up to 250 people. This limit applies to wedding receptions, parties, and other events where people are in close physical contact for extended periods of time, particularly indoors.
  • Dining room food service may continue operations at up to 75 percent capacity as long as social distancing is observed. Bar seating in restaurants may continue operations at 50 percent capacity. Bars and nightclubs may continue operations open at 50 percent capacity as long as they adhere to social distancing guidelines.
  • Cultural, entertainment and tourism sites may continue operations open at 50 percent capacity.
  • Movie theaters, bowling alleys and similar facilities may continue operations open at 50 percent capacity.
  • Amusement parks, water parks and similar facilities may continue operations open at 50 percent capacity. Reservations are encouraged to limit the number of customers at any one time.
  • Raceways may continue operations open at 50 percent grandstand capacity.

 
Beginning July 4, fairs, festivals and other similar outdoor events may open. Pari-mutuel horse racing and county and state fair racing may begin with 50 percent spectator capacity. Youth overnight camps may open.
 
K-12 school operations may begin the 2020-21 academic year on July 1. Extra-curricular, co-curricular activities may resume July 6.
 
Outdoor visitation is required at assisted living facilities and nursing homes beginning July 4 and indoor visitation may begin. Hospital visitations with precautions are encouraged.
 
Hoosiers 65 and over and those with high-risk health conditions – who are the most vulnerable to the coronavirus – should adhere to social distancing guidelines and remain cautious. Face coverings in public places are highly recommended.

Governor Announces Transition to Stage 4 of the Back On Track Indiana Plan to Safely Reopen Indiana
 
Governor Holcomb signed Executive Order 20-32 which allows all 92 counties in the state to advance to Stage 4 of the Back On Track Indiana plan on Friday, June 12. This announcement came as the 4 guiding principles continue to hold steady and health indicators remain positive.
 
The state will move to reopen while continuing to monitor and respond to these four guiding principles:
 

  • The number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients statewide has decreased for 14 days
  • The state retains its surge capacity for critical care beds and ventilators
  • The state retains its ability to test all Hoosiers who are COVID-19 symptomatic as well as health care workers, first responders, and frontline employees
  • Health Officials have systems in place to contact all individuals who test positive for COVID-19 and expand contact tracing

 
Governor Holcomb announced this transition 2 days earlier than previously expected. Indiana Back On Track has five stages. Local governments may impose more restrictive guidelines.
 
As the state lifts restrictions and more people return to work, visit a store or restaurant, and participate in more activities, the number of COVID-19 cases will increase. If these principles cannot be met, all or portions of the state may need to pause on moving forward or may need to return to an earlier phase of the governor’s Back On Track roadmap.
 
Stage 4
 
In Stage 4, Hoosiers 65 and over and those with high-risk health conditions – who are the most vulnerable to the coronavirus – should remain at home as much as possible. Face coverings in public places are recommended.
 

  • Social gatherings of up to 250 people will be permitted following the CDC’s social distancing guidelines.
  • Outdoor visitation may take place at assisted living facilities and nursing homes. Hospital visitations with precautions are encouraged.
  • Retail, commercial businesses and malls may open at full capacity.
  • Dining room food service may open at up to 75 percent capacity as long as social distancing is observed. Bar seating in restaurants may open at 50 percent capacity. Bars and nightclubs may open at 50 percent capacity as long as they adhere to social distancing guidelines.
  • Cultural, entertainment and tourism sites may open at 50 percent capacity.
  • Movie theaters, bowling alleys and similar facilities may open at 50 percent capacity.
  • Amusement parks, water parks and similar facilities may open at 50 percent capacity. Reservations are encouraged to limit the number of customers at any one time. Playgrounds may reopen.
  • Community recreational non-contact sports practices, games and tournaments may resume. Contact sports, such as football, basketball, rugby or wrestling, can conduct conditioning and non-contact drills. Contact sports may resume games or tournaments beginning Friday, June 19. Before any games or tournaments, the host must make publicly available a COVID response plan outlining the steps being taken to ensure social distancing, increased sanitation and overall protection of competitors, coaches, staff, and spectators.
  • Raceways may open at 50 percent grandstand capacity.
  • Pari-mutuel horse racing may begin with no spectators at Hoosier Park and Indiana Grand facilities. Charity gaming and casinos may open Monday, June 15 with the approval of the Indiana Gaming Commission.
  • Conventions, fairs, festivals, parades and similar events remain closed.

 
If health indicators remain positive, the state will move to Stage 5 in early July.

Essential Business Under CISA
 
The Governor issued a Stay-at-Home order for all Hoosiers until April 20. This means all non-essential businesses had to close as of March 24, 2020. At this time, the Executive Order allows for essential businesses to remain open. Chiropractic offices fall into this category and are considered an "essential business" and will be allowed to remain open. However, it is a strong recommendation from the ISCA that you make every effort to limit your staff and the number of people in your offices if you choose to remain open and follow all CDC guidelines.
 
 
When the "essential business" list from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) originally came out, chiropractors were not specifically listed, but Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and others were. Although we were covered under other language in Governor Holcomb's executive order and the CISA list, the ISCA wanted to ensure there was no question.  The ISCA requested that the ACA send a letter to the DHS to ask that chiropractors be specifically listed with the other healthcare professionals. The DHS responded with the attached memo.  Chiropractic is now officially listed under the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers CISA list from the Department of Homeland Security.
 
 
HEALTHCARE / PUBLIC HEALTH
 
• Workers who perform critical clinical research, development, and testing needed for COVID-19 response.
 
• Healthcare providers and Caregivers including physicians, dentists, psychologists, mid-level practitioners, nurses and assistants, infection control and quality assurance personnel, pharmacists, physical and occupational therapists, and assistants, social workers, optometrists, speech pathologists, chiropractors, and diagnostic and therapeutic technicians and technologists.

 
 
 

Online CE Update:
 
ISCA advocated for you to be able to do continuing education ONLINE, especially during this COVID-19 crisis. With our efforts, online CE will be accepted for all approved entities. You will now be able to get all of your CE hours online before license renewal!
 
Our association THRIVES based on the Involvement, Commitment, and Loyalty of our Indiana doctors.  With your support through membership and ISCA sponsored CEs, we are able to fulfill our MISSION to Promote, Educate, and Protect the entire Chiropractic Community in Indiana and Advocate for our unrestricted access to Chiropractic Care.
 
Continuing Education Requirement for the July 1, 2020 Renewal: The Indiana Board of Chiropractic Examiners will accept any part or all of the required continuing education hours by distance learning that is provided by an approved organization as specified in Indiana Code IC 25-1-4-0.2.

Introduction of the ISCA's New Executive Director

Jessaca Turner Stults

I’m happy to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the Indiana State Chiropractic Association members as the new Executive Director. I’ve had the opportunity to take part in many legislative issues that have positively impacted the care you provide to your patients. It is that work that makes me excited to help preserve, protect and promote your profession now and into the future in the state of Indiana. 

  

I am Jessaca Turner Stults, and I serve as the managing partner of The Capitol Group (formerly TSS Capitol Group) which I founded in 2010. I began my legal career as a deputy prosecutor in Marion County then moved into governmental affairs. In 2006, I worked as the Legislative Director for the Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA), the State’s largest agency. In 2007, I became General Counsel of FSSA, while maintaining my role as Legislative Director for the agency. I advocated before the Indiana General Assembly protecting and monitoring FSSA’s interests and was instrumental in the passage of the Governor’s Healthy Indiana Plan. 

 

The Capitol Group has been working with the ISCA for a number of years and we have a team of dedicated individuals that wake up each day prepared to advocate for our clients, their mission and goals.  We are both excited and humbled to have the opportunity to manage your association and advocate for you, especially during a time when healthcare is under the microscope. We have the education, resources, dedication and relationships to educate the Indiana legislative body, Executive Branch, and other stakeholders on the importance of protecting chiropractic care.  

 

I’m pleased to be trusted by your leadership and executive committee and know the future is bright with our partnership. We have exciting things in store for the ISCA and our goal is to become a stronger and more useful organization to enhance your membership interests and legislative presence as the Indiana State Chiropractic Association.  We are Stronger Together. 

 
 

Let’s preserve, protect and promote the chiropractic profession, together. 
 

Jessaca Turner Stults,  

Executive Director, ISCA
