Public Service Announcement - Baptist Health Floyd Community from Chief Medical Officer at Baptist Health in New Albany
March 31 2020
As the Chief Medical Officer of Baptist Floyd, a practicing Nephrologist in the community, and as a resident of New Albany, I felt it necessary to update our local community about where we stand in this uncharted healthcare landscape. I will try to keep this as straightforward as possible.
The main impetus for this announcement is the concern that both Tom Harris, MD, the Floyd County Health Officer, and I have about our community not having fully embraced the “Shelter at Home/In Place” order given by our Governor and the Indiana State Health Department. Based on our numbers, Floyd County has become somewhat of a “hotspot” for the virus. Part of this is because we have been able to test more than other counties around because of our access to the Indiana State Department of Health labs and our strategic partnership with U of L Research labs.

Updated Court System Information
An Update from the Floyd County Circuit and Superior Courts and Magistrate Court
The Judges of the Floyd Circuit and Superior Courts and the Floyd County Magistrate have met and reviewed Governor Holcomb's Executive Order 20-08 ("Directive for Hoosiers to Stay Home"). The Courts continue to balance the need for essential court operations to take place with the need for citizens to stay home and socially distance when out of their homes. Thus, the Courts remain open for statutorily required and other critical and emergency hearings. Also, where possible, scheduled hearings will be held telephonically. The Courts are in the process of rescheduling many cases in order to reduce the need for people to leave their houses. Parties or their attorneys will be notified by mail of the rescheduled dates and times. However, if you have a case pending with a hearing date, you must appear in Court unless otherwise informed by the Court. Also, attorneys and litigants are also asked to check the status of individual cases on mycase.in.gov or by contacting the Court before they come to City-County Building.
