INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — State health officials say a second person in Indiana has tested positive for COVID-19. The adult who lives in Hendricks County traveled to Boston last month to attend a meeting of the biotech firm Biogen and developed mild flu-like symptoms days later.

The Indiana State Department of Health said Sunday that the person is in isolation and not being hospitalized. State officials say several COVID-19 cases have been tied to the Boston meeting, including a Marion County resident identified Friday as Indiana's first case.

Two Hendricks County couples are petitioning the Indiana Court of Appeals to rehear their case against a neighboring farm with 8,000 hogs. They say the smell from the confined animal feeding operation or CAFO is making it difficult for them to eat or sleep.
