Coronavirus restrictions are reinstated in Indiana following sharp increases in COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths.
Governor Eric Holcomb is extending the statewide mask mandate for another month.
In addition, the new executive order limits crowd sizes to 25 people in the highest-red counties and 50 people in the next riskiest orange counties. Larger events need approval from local health officials.
The new order will also limit capacity at K-12 indoor sports and extracurricular events to 25% capacity in orange counties and only parents or guardians as spectators in red counties. Religious services, however, will face no crowd restrictions. To access information on all updated requirements, access this link.
The Indiana COVID-19 Data Report has all the updated data including a map showing which Indiana counties are red and which are orange.
Make sure you check with your local health officials to learn about any additional restrictions for your county.
