FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – According to Indiana’s COVID-19 dashboard, the state is seeing a slight increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations.

“Lutheran Health Network has seen an increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations over the past few weeks. All safety measures remain in place. We continue to follow all guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“Parkview Health has seen a gradual increase in hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the last month. Though our current numbers are much lower than what we saw in the winter surge, we continue to closely monitor hospitalizations and other key indicators of COVID-19 activity in our community. To date, only about 30% of Hoosiers are fully vaccinated. Hand hygiene, mask wearing and physical distancing remain important for protecting yourself and others from COVID-19.”
