MUNCIE – Coronavirus dominated an afternoon luncheon discussion between Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb and Jeff Parsons, the Muncie-Delaware County Chamber of Commerce board chairman, on Thursday.

The discussion between the two was the keynote address for the chamber's luncheon event at the Horizon Convention Center.

“There will be loss and there will be adverse effects to the economy, but we will come out stronger on the other side,” Holcomb reassured the crowd gathered at the event.

Unlike a chamber luncheon in a regular year, though, social distancing and masked attendees were constant reminders that the pandemic remains an ongoing struggle for the state.

Parsons asked the governor a line of questions, many focusing on how the coronavirus was impacting Indiana and what the attendees at the lunch could expect in the weeks and months ahead.
