Indiana Developing Workplace Standards Ahead Of Slow Reopen
Gov. Eric Holcomb says the state is developing workplace standards to protect employees from the spread of the novel coronavirus.
That is all ahead of May 1, when the state plans to start reopening sectors of the economy.
Before extending the state’s “Stay-At-Home” order, Holcomb asked business associations and industries for feedback on how they could protect workers.

Leading up to May 1, Holcomb says he has a “binder full” of plans submitted to the state on how industries can and will adjust to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
"We’ll be looking at, for different businesses, what are these new requirements and standards?" Holcomb says.
Holcomb says, before the May 1 deadline, those guidelines will be made publicly available.
