INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana's Governor Eric Holcomb launched a new campaign Wednesday called #INthistogether to promote the importance of social distancing campaign to help flatten the curve for COVID-19 in Indiana.

Gov. Holcomb along with Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett and a coalition of statewide business and community partners including Eli Lilly and Company – are teaming up to promote the campaign.

"The #INthistogether campaign will help Hoosiers understand the importance of social distancing, provide access to helpful tips and information and galvanize community-wide commitment to flattening the curve," the governor's office said in a release sent out Wednesday. "When done correctly, social distancing reduces the number of hospitalizations and deaths related to the pandemic."

“Social distancing is the most important and effective tool we have to defeat COVID-19,” said Gov. Holcomb. “If we act now, we can save lives and then re-open our state for business, group activities, sports and the other things we enjoy doing together as Hoosiers. But we need every person to take this seriously and do their part. We are truly in this together.”
