INDIANAPOLIS (WTWO/WAWV) — Restrictions prohibiting dine-in services at Indiana restaurants and bars will be extended through April 6.
Gov. Eric Holcomb first signed an executive order March 16 closing all restaurants and bars in the state to in-person dining; however, as coronavirus cases continue to increase in the state, he announced Tuesday the order would be extended.
Restaurants and bars holding licenses allowing for on-premises alcohol sales are now allowed to provide carry-out during the pandemic.
Holcomb also said he would sign an executive order that will waive state statute to allow e-notary rules to go into effect.
The Indiana State Department of Health Tuesday announced another 14 coronavirus-related deaths in the state. The total number of cases is now at 2,159.
