Governor Holcomb extended Indiana’s COVID-19 Public Health Emergency on Tuesday.

He signed Executive Order 20-49, which extends the emergency an additional 30 days, which stretches it to the end of the year. The previous order was set to expire on December 1.

The order extends all COVID-related Executive Orders, including Indiana’s mask requirement.

There are still restrictions based on a color-coded system by county. Elkhart and LaGrange Counties are red, the highest alert level. All other Indiana counties in the MNC listening area, including St. Joseph, are orange.

Orange status counties limit social gatherings and events to 50 people, with K-12 sports limited to 25% capacity.

Counties in the red must limit social gatherings and events to 25 people, and K-12 sports attendance is restricted to family/guardians, participants and staff. Restaurants are encouraged to do curbside pickup and delivery, and businesses are encouraged to have employees work from home.
