Governor Signs More COVID-19-Related Executive Orders

Governor Eric Holcomb continues to ease some restrictions while tightening others in the response to COVID-19. An executive order signed Tuesday will allow for electronic notary services, so documents can be reviewed and approved remotely. It also extends the deadline for Hoosier Lottery winners to claim the prizes and gives additional flexibility for scheduling horse races.

As previously announced, the governor has also extended the closure of bars and restaurants to dine-in customers to next Monday. Tuesday’s order specifies that the prohibition also applies to outdoor seating areas and restaurant parking lots. Drive-thru, take-out, and delivery services may continue.

Indiana is currently under a stay-at-home order, and schools are closed until May 1. During a press conference Tuesday, Holcomb said he expects to announce some potential updates to the school closure within the next couple of days.
