Gov. Holcomb Extends Restaurant, Bar Restrictions in COVID-19 Fight
INDIANAPOLIS — Governor Eric J. Holcomb today signed two executive
orders to aid in the fight against COVID-19. To see copies of the executive
orders, click here:
Executive order 20-14 extends the requirements for bars, nightclubs and
restaurants to stay closed to dine-in patrons until April 6 at 11:59 p.m.
They may continue to provide take-out and delivery services.
The Governor expects bars, nightclubs and restaurants to comply with the
directive for the safety of Hoosiers in their communities without the
need to call for enforcement measures. However, the state and local boards
of health and the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission (ATC) have been
directed by the Governor to take all available administrative and enforcement
actions against establishments that continue to offer in-house dining
services, in violation of the governor’s order.
Executive order 20-15 eases government operations including permitting
electronic notary services to remotely review and approve documents.
Additional steps taken by the state today include:
The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will hold a virtual job
fair for more than 1,000 construction and related positions at 10 a.m.
ET on Thursday, April 16.
The Indiana Commission for Higher Education will offer free virtual FAFSA
filing help for students and families from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 4.
