Sunday, May 30, 2021

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb has signed a pair of COVID-19 Executive Orders.

On Friday, Holcomb signed Executive Order 21-14 to extend the public health emergency. This continuation allows certain individuals who otherwise would not be eligible, to administer COVID-19 vaccinations and allow the State to continue to receive pandemic emergency funds for programs such as the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Program and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

Holcomb also signed Executive Order 21-15 to adjust and lift other requirements beginning June 1. The Executive Order changes include: removing the mask mandate while in State facilities except for certain locations; continuing the face covering requirement inside Indiana schools through June 30, except for outdoor activities; Starting July 1, local school boards will determine what measures or restrictions are needed in their local schools; directing Hoosiers to follow the CDC guidelines for fully vaccinated and unvaccinated people regarding mask wearing and other protective measures; and waiving any penalties or interest payments accrued on State income taxes on unemployment wages that must be paid due to HEA 1436.

All directives in Executive Orders which have been continued throughout the public health emergency will be rescinded and cease on June 30.
