LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Tippecanoe County Health Department released a statement Friday to remind the community that even though Indiana is moving to stage 5 of the "Back on Track Plan", the restaurant and bar restrictions remain in effect until further notice.

The Health Officer's order issued on September 9, requires the following:

  1. Restaurant capacity shall continue to be limited to 75% of available seating (including outdoor facilities); provided that, social distancing of at least 6 feet is maintained.
  2. Bar capacity shall continue to be limited to 50% of available seating (including outdoor facilities); provided that, social distancing of at least 6 feet is maintained.
  3. Patrons of restaurants, bars and nightclubs are required to remain seated at tables, or at the bar when bar-top service is permitted. Restaurants, bars and nightclubs are permitted to offer bar-top service until 9 pm for patrons who are dining provided social distancing of 6 feet is maintained between parties seated at the bar. Table-top service is required for patrons not seated at the bar.
  4. Dance floors shall not be used. Game areas, such as for billiards, pinball, and darts, will be limited to only those patrons actually participating in the use of those facilities.
  5. Restaurants, bars and nightclubs shall be limited in the hours that patrons will be served: Such facilities shall close, with patrons having left the facility, no later than 12:00 midnight. Restaurants may open for in-person dining at 5:00 AM; bars and nightclubs may open as permitted by applicable regulatory authority.
  6. This Order does not apply to drive through, curbside, and delivery services provided by restaurants, bars and nightclubs when such services are provided in a manner expected to minimize the risk of Covid 19 transmission.

Governor Holcomb's Stage 5 Executive Order 20-43 allows counties to impose more stringent requirements than those specified in the Executive Order.
