A stay-at-home executive order was signed by Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb.
Holcomb addressed the state Monday where he announced he signed four executive orders.
The stay-at-home order will start at midnight on March 24 and states people must “remain in their homes except when they are at work or for permitted activities, such as taking care of others, obtaining necessary supplies, and for health and safety.”
All in-house dining has also been ordered to stop. Health Departments will deliver letters to businesses that violate the order and if orders are ignored food and beverage licenses will be suspended.
Because in-house dining has been ordered to stop, Holcomb also signed an executive order that “relaxes the sale of carryout alcoholic beverages for dining establishments.”
Access to government buildings and services will also be limited until April 7.
“I’m setting the example by sending state government personnel home to work to the maximum extent possible and closing our facilities to public interaction beginning Tuesday, for at least the next two weeks,” Holcomb said.
The executive orders will remain in effect until April 7.
As of Monday morning, there were 259 positive COVID-19 cases reported in Indiana. Seven deaths have been reported.
