INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) — Gov. Holcomb released on Monday new changes to the "Stay-at-home" order. On Friday, Gov. Holcomb told reporters that on Tuesday at 11:59 p.m. the order was going to be extended to April 20.

“Hoosiers have done a great job adapting to the new rules put in place during this public health emergency, but I believe the next two weeks to month could be the most critical for all of us,” said Gov. Holcomb. “So I am asking you to take even more precautions: only make in-person purchases when absolutely needed and use other delivery and pickup options when available. Limit who is traveling with you and entering stores.”

At the daily COVID-19 press conference, the following new parameters were release:

For businesses that are open and have in-store customers:

  • Limit the number of customers in a store at any one time
  • Adjust hours to accommodate vulnerable populations, such as individuals
  • Limit hours to restock and clean
  • Comply with all mitigation measures to protect employees and customers best serve claimants
  • Professional services should be conducted virtually or by telephone.
  • Hoosiers are reminded that all public and private gatherings of any kind that include more than 10 people are prohibited.

All other retail businesses may remain open if they restrict sales to online or call-in ordering with delivery or curbside pickup.

Also announce, all campgrounds will be closed except for those who use recreational vehicles or cabins at their primary residence

In addition to IOSHA investigations, Gov. Holcomb has directed the creation of a multi-agency enforcement response team, led by the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission to respond to and investigate other violations of the new order. Much like the enforcement of the restaurant, bar and nightclub executive order, this team will be charged with helping business owners comply with the order before issuing a directive to close a business.

To allow campgrounds, retail, and other establishments to make adjustments, enforcement will nor begin until 24 hours after the order takes effect.
