Another of Indiana’s largest school districts announced Wednesday it planned to not have students return to classrooms until October as school leaders struggle with reopening decisions.

Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb was expected to announce Wednesday afternoon a decision on whether to change any of the state’s coronavirus restrictions on crowd sizes for restaurants, bars and public events, which are currently scheduled to expire Saturday.

A statewide face mask mandate went into effect Monday as health officials have raised worries about Indiana’s number of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.

Indianapolis Public Schools officials said Wednesday they planned to conduct all classes online until at least October. They said that “will allow more time for the number of COVID-19 cases in Marion County to stabilize and decrease to a less dangerous level.”

Several other school districts around the state have also decided to begin the academic year online

State health officials added eight more COVID-19 fatalities to the state’s death toll, raising that to 2,932 since mid-March. Indiana’s COVID-19 hospitalizations have grown by about 50% since late June, while the seven-day average of newly recorded coronavirus infections has more than doubled during that time to about 800 cases.
