Governor Holcomb Issues Stay-at-Home Order

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb has ordered that residents remain in their homes except for taking care of others, obtaining necessary supplies, and for health and safety. The order is in effect from March 25 to April 7.

“The next two weeks are critical if we are to slow the spread of COVID-19, and we must slow the spread. You must be part of the solution, not the problem,” said Governor Holcomb.

In the order, Holcomb says people riding on public transit must comply with social distancing requirements to the greatest extent feasible. 

All places of public amusement, whether indoors or outdoors, shall be closed.  This includes museums, children’s play centers, playgrounds, bowling alleys, movie and other theaters, country clubs, or social clubs. 

People at high risk of severe illness from COVID-19 including elderly people and those who are sick are urged to stay in their residence except to seek medical care. 

Residents may leave their homes to obtain services at the food pantry, or entities that are providing services to the general public and including state-operated, institutional, or community-based settings providing human services to the public. 

State government personnel will be working remotely and state government facilities will be closed to the public for the next two weeks.  An automatic extension of all state-issued licenses was ordered and all law enforcement was advised to refrain from issuing citations for a driver’s license or registration that expired during this emergency.
