Elkhart County’s COVID-19 restrictions are likely to remain in place for a while.
Elkhart County Health Officer Dr. Bethany Wait told The Elkhart Truth that she doesn’t anticipate the county’s COVID-19 mitigation directives will be modified or lifted until 70% of its adult population has been vaccinated.
As of Monday only 2% had received the two doses.
The Health Department is unsure when 70% might happen due a number of different factors that come into play.
The county encourages those who are planning events to work with the Health Department to develop plans for safe events.
