COVID-19 Cancels Austin July Fireworks

No Decision On Crothersville Red, White & Blue Festival, Scott County Fair

Social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19 has resulted in the City of Austin to cancel the community’s annual July fireworks display along with the traditional food vendors. Governor Eric Holcomb’s Friday announcement of phased-in what remains closed in Indiana will probably cancel two other area events.
“Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainties forthcoming, we regretfully decided that the City’s annual Fireworks Display will not be held in 2020,” said Austin Mayor Roger Hawkins.
“This decision has not been taken lightly and we have considered all possibilities bearing in mind the situation we are in; however, the safety and wellbeing of our citizens and attendees is of the utmost importance; therefore, we feel it is necessary to cancel this event.”
He continued, “It is our hope that 2021 will bring us a healthier, more sustainable economy and we will be able, without hesitation, to continue our fireworks display.”
While Erica Gorbett, director of the Crothersville Red, White & Blue Festival said last week that no decision has been made on holding the festival, Holcomb’s Back-On-Track schedule may make the decision for the annual June Crothersville Festival.
According to the Governor’s phased-in schedule of what can be opened and what remains closed, from May 24-June 13 (which would include the Red, White & Blue Festival), cultural, entertainment, sports venues and tourism remain closed.
The June 14-July 3 phase-in will cancel the Scott County Fair scheduled for June 21-27. Though no official announcement has been made by local fair officials, the governor’s orders are clear. “Large events such as conventions, sports events, fairs, festivals, and parades” remain closed.

Governor Announces Plan To Reopen Indiana

Last Friday Governor Eric J. Holcomb announced his ‘Back On Track Indiana’ plan to safely open the economy and remain vigilant about protecting Hoosiers’ health and wellbeing.
“Across Indiana, we have witnessed a spirit of cooperation and caring for others that has touched my heart. May this spirit of appreciation for one another carry on long after the scourge of COVID-19 is behind us,” Gov. Holcomb said. Gov. Holcomb said he used data to drive decisions since the state’s first case of the novel coronavirus in early March and he will continue to do so as the state contemplates 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
If we cannot meet these principles, all or portions of the state may need to pause on moving forward or we may return to an earlier phase of the governor’s stay-at-home order.
Indiana Back On Track has five stages. Beginning Monday, May 4, nearly all of Indiana moved to stage 2. For three counties – Cass, Lake and Marion counties – stage 2 will begin at a later date. Local governments may impose more restrictive guidelines.
In Stage 2 to protect the most vulnerable to COVID-19, Hoosiers 65 and over and those with high-risk health conditions– who are the most vulnerable to the coronavirus– should remain at home.
•Essential travel restrictions will be lifted, and social gatherings of up to 25 people will be permitted following the CDC’s social distancing guidelines.

Starting Friday, May 8th, for all of the state’s counties, indoor worship services may also convene, following specific social distancing guidelines– while those 65 and older and those at elevated risk will be asked to stay home.
If health indicators remain positive, the state will move to stage 3 on May 24.

Scott County Health Department Suspends Elderly Screenings; Limits Vaccinations

To help stop the spread of the coronavirus, the Scott County Health Department has initiated two changes that could impact county residents.
The Health Department has suspended all Older Adult and Screening Education Services (O.A.S.E.S) for the rest of the year due to the coronavirus pandemic. These clinics were held every Thursday at different locations thru out the community and performed health screenings for older adults.
“The Health Department feels this population is at greatest risk for contracting coronavirus and should continue social distancing for their health and safety,” said Brittany Combs, County Health Nurse. “The Scott County Health Department will reassess the health of the community at the end of the year and will determine if the OASES clinics can be resumed next year.”
Additionally, the health department is limiting immunization appointments for younger residents.
“We are following the CDC guidelines in that healthcare providers prioritize vaccination of infants and young children through 24 months of age,” said Combs. “We will postpone all older children and adult vaccines at this time.”
The Health Department will require infants and young children through 24 months to be seen by appointment only. The appointments will be spread out to allow social distancing and cleaning between patients.
“We ask that when you bring in your child you only have one adult per child,” said Combs, “The Health Department will constantly reassess the situation and begin immunization for other age groups as soon as possible.”
Residents with questions, can call the Health Department of 812-752-8455.
