UPDATE: Story has been updated to clarify that Travel Watch covers all of St. Joseph County

South Bend Mayor James Mueller announced this morning that due to an increase in cases in South Bend he is making an emergency declaration, and placing a travel watch on the city. The Travel Watch is also in effect for all of St. Joseph County.

That means that starting at 2pm residents should NOT be leaving their homes for anything other than essential travel. Essential travel is considered travel for work, grocery or food, or taking care of medical needs.

During his press conference it was also announced that St. Joseph County is now up to 5 confirmed cases. We have more details throughout the day.

The City of South Bend has created a new COVID-19 update page on their website: https://southbendin.gov/covid-19-resources-support/

  1. Contact the correct officials and have the sirens turned on from 2:00-2:30. Many people don’t know about the Mayor’s desoration. They will want to find out.

  2. So, for matters of clarification going forward. Has South Bend moved out of St Joseph County? If it is still in St Joseph County and the county has a travel watch already in effect is this the Mayor flexing his muscle to show that the city really, really means it ?
