National Guard To Deploy In Long-Term Care Facilities Across Indiana

(INDIANAPOLIS) – Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb says members of the Indiana National Guard are set to deploy to long-term care facilities across the state.

The plan is part of the statewide response to what health officials are calling a troubling increase in coronavirus case numbers and positivity rates.

The National Guard is set to deploy on November 2nd.

Last week, Holcomb said more than 55-percent of coronavirus deaths are attributed to long-term care facilities.
