Indiana public health officials on Sunday reported nine additional deaths due to COVID-19 and 407 new cases.
The Indiana State Department of Health announced there have been a total of 2,240 coronavirus deaths overall since the start of the pandemic and 39,909 total cases in the state. Health officials say there are another 182 probable deaths, but there was no positive test on record.
The state has administered 348,391 COVID-19 tests overall.
For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. But for others, especially older people and the infirm, it can cause severe symptoms and lead to death.
Indiana entered the latest stage of Gov. Eric Holcomb’s reopening plan on Friday, allowing additional businesses to reopen and fill at higher capacities.
Under the plan, restaurants can open to 75% capacity. Bars, movie theaters and other entertainment venues can operate at 50% capacity. Zoos and museums can reopen, and gatherings of up to 250 people are allowed as long as attendees stay six feet apart.
