INDIANAPOLIS — Counties with a high number of COVID-19 cases will have adjusted targeted restrictions under a new executive order signed by Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb.

The new executive order will go into effect Sunday until at least Feb. 28.

“We are not out of the woods,” Holcomb said in the press release. "The steps we have been taking to reduce the spread must continue, especially wearing a face covering and maintaining social distancing. As we’ve experienced before, trends that look promising can shift very quickly, and we will continue to monitor what is happening with positivity, deaths, and cases per capita, as we have done since the start of the pandemic."

Restrictions on gathering sizes for counties will be based on the color-coded county metric map from the Indiana State Department of Health. The map measures weekly cases per 100,000 residents and the seven-day positivity rate for all tests and is updated every Wednesday.
