Holcomb to extend color-coded restrictions executive order

Wabash Valley COVID-19 updates

INDIANAPOLIS (WTWO/WAWV) –– While the state continues to show promising trends where the coronavirus is concerned, Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb said it is important to continue to take the steps that are working.

Holcomb announced Wednesday during his weekly COVID-19 update that the color-coded restrictions executive order would be extended.

Vermillion, Sullivan and Daviess counties moved into the state’s blue advisory level, according to the latest data provided Wednesday by the Indiana Department of Health.

The blue advisory level is the lowest advisory level under Gov. Eric Holcomb’s Back On Track Indiana Plan.

Under the blue advisory level, both indoor and outdoor social gatherings are limited to 250 people. Any gathering with more than 250 people must be approved by the local health department. All general requirements such as mask-wearing and social distancing remain in effect.

This week’s briefing comes a day after the Indiana State Department of Health announced that Hoosier eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine is now expanded to those age 60 years and over.
