Indiana Governor Mandates Masks In Public

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - Indiana joins the growing number of states with a mandatory face mask order.

Governor Eric Holcomb announced the order Wednesday, saying it will go into effect next Monday, July 27th.  

It comes after Indiana health officials reported another day of over 700 new COVID-19 cases.

The order requires anyone age 8 or older to wear a face mask in indoor public spaces, commercial businesses or outside public spaces where social distancing is not possible. 

Holcomb says not wearing a mask will be a Class B misdemeanor, but "the mask police will not be patrolling Hoosier streets."
