Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb signed an executive order Wednesday to allow pharmacy students who have completed their course work to apply for temporary licenses to fight the spread of COVID-19, according to a press release.

Additionally, under the order, health care providers who cannot meet in person can continue education requirements via distance learning, the press release states.

As allowed by the recently passed federal CARES Act, the executive order permits state and county employees, teachers and other public employees who have a defined contribution account to access funds without penalty if they have been affected by COVID-19, it states.

The order also further extends the deadline for property tax payments. Holcomb had previously extended the deadline under executive order 20-05.
