Gov. Holcomb released from hospital

Holcomb's press secretary said he is responding well to treatment.

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb has been released from the hospital after he was diagnosed with pneumonia.

Saturday just before noon, a tweet from press secretary Erin Murphy on the governor's account said he was released and resting at home.

In a tweet Friday, the governor's press secretary said he went to the doctor Thursday, thinking it was the flu. He had since been admitted to the hospital "out of an abundance of caution" and was responding to treatment.

Holcomb's press secretary said he would continue to carry out his duties and responsibilities while recovering. Lieutenant Gov. Suzanne Crouch will not need to act as governor in the interim.

Crouch released a statement, wishing for a quick recovery for the governor:

"I've been in contact with his staff today, and it’s good to hear the Governor is resting well and responding to treatment. I will be praying for a speedy recovery for him."

Crouch tested positive for COVID-19 in October. She experienced mild symptoms and continued to work from home.
