Indiana's Novel Coronavirus Response

On March 6, 2020, the state Department of Health confirmed Indiana’s first case of COVID-19, a novel respiratory virus first identified in Wuhan, China, in late 2019 that became a global pandemic.

On March 16, the Department of Health reported the first death in Indiana due to COVID-19. On May 18, Indiana confirmed its first case of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) associated with COVID-19.

The state Department of Health is working with federal and local partners, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to respond to this evolving public health situation.
