Indiana To Hold In Phase 4.5 for At Least Two More Weeks
Thursday, July 16, 2020

Governor Eric Holcomb declared, once again, on Wednesday, July 15, that Indiana is still not yet ready to move on to Phase 5 of the reopening plan and will remain at Stage 4.5 for another two weeks, due to the increase in COVID-19 positive rates.

Gov. Holcomb and Indiana State Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Kris Box, M.D., FACOG, announced on Wednesday a statewide initiative to encourage Hoosiers to wear masks to limit the spread of COVID-19.

The #MaskUpHoosiers initiative is launching with videos and photos of state government leaders, celebrities, and Hoosiers from all walks of life sharing their heartfelt reasons for wearing a mask in public, which is one of the strongest steps possible to limit the spread of COVID-19, saving lives and allowing the state to continue its phased re-opening. Additional photos and videos will be featured as the educational campaign progresses. Visit www.coronavirus.in.gov/maskuphoosiers to learn more.

The Governor signed an executive order implementing these changes to the Back on Track Indiana roadmap. The Governor also signed an executive order extending the public health emergency through Aug. 3. The executive orders can be found here: https://www.in.gov/gov/2384.htm
