INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s governor extended Wednesday the statewide face mask order that he first issued a month ago aimed at slowing the coronavirus spread.
Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb announced he was keeping the mask mandate in place for another 30 days.
Holcomb said he was also extending the state’s limits crowd sizes for restaurants, bars and public events. Those orders were all set to expire late Wednesday unless the governor acted.
Holcomb said he was pleased the state’s rates of new coronavirus cases have been holding steady and he does not want to see it trending up again.
