Statewide mask mandate downgraded to advisory

Indiana's statewide mask mandate is now just an advisory.


Local governments, and individual establishments can still employ more stringent requirements.  For example, Elkhart County has extended its mandate through May 14 with an uptick in Covid cases.  Many government offices will still call for masks to be worn.  


Shelby and Hancock County have advised they plan to follow the governor's order.  Marion County will maintain the mask mandate for now.
