Officials said they are cautiously optimistic about the numbers they have seen, but said there is "absolutely" a chance of a second wave.

Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box said people must continue to practice social distancing, wear masks and follow guidelines or there will be a risk of increased cases.

Box said there is no automatic date for moving to newer phases, as there is a lag in data every time they reopen more of the economy.

During the pandemic, Indiana officials said they have seen a surge in naloxone, an opioid overdose reversal, use.

In March, Indiana saw a 50% increase in naloxone over the same month in 2019. April numbers were up 93% over the previous year.

Statewide, there has been a 35% increase in naloxone use.
