Indianapolis holds mask mandate, virus precautions for now

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Indianapolis is maintaining its mask mandate and other coronavirus precautions for the time being, despite Governor Eric Holcomb’s decision this week to end Indiana’s statewide mask mandate in early April.

Mayor Joe Hogsett said Thursday it was too early for Marion County, Indiana’s most populous county to end its mask mandate and business capacity restrictions, and said they would remain in place until the county’s public health order is lifted.

He also quoted the many visitors who gathered for the NCAA basketball tournament in the capital, Hoosier.

Holcomb announced Tuesday that it would lift the statewide mask mandate and remaining COVID-19 business restrictions starting April 6.
