Indiana has seen a 66% increase in hospitalizations over the past three weeks.

The number of COVID-19 patients in Indiana hospitals continued its sharp spike over the Thanksgiving weekend.

The state health department reports Indiana hospitals had about 2,000 COVID-19 patients as of Sunday, an increase of 170, or 9%, from Tuesday.

Indiana has seen a 66% increase in hospitalizations over the past three weeks.

The Republican-dominated state Legislature had been scheduled to meet Monday for votes on a proposal that included administrative actions which Gov. Eric Holcomb had said would enable him to end the state’s public health emergency.

But those votes were called off following objections from medical and business groups over provisions forcing broad exemptions from workplace vaccination requirements.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some higher amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
