On Wednesday, Gov. Holcomb detailed his new COVID-19 Executive Order, which puts restrictions on gathering sizes and sporting events in counties classified as Orange or Red on the state health department's County Metrics Map.
The Dubois County Health Department (DCHD) says it's taking those restrictions a step further, by adding more stringent requirements for citizens of the county.
Here are the new restrictions that will go into effect in Dubois County on Nov. 15:
- At this time, the Dubois County Health Department will not be granting approval for any gatherings over 50 people.
- Attendance at winter indoor K-12 extracurricular and co-curricular activities, including IHSAA sports, is limited to participants, support personnel, and parents/guardians only.
- Community recreational sports leagues and tournaments may continue with participants, required personnel, and parents/guardians only.
- Capacity in common areas and break rooms should be reduced.
- Senior care activities are suspended.
- Hospitals, long-term care facilities, and other congregate settings should impose visitation limits, if not already in place.
- Businesses must post signs at public and employee entrances stating that face coverings are required, and only people wearing face coverings be allowed inside.
- Please avoid altercations. If customers become unruly notify the local police.
- All customers (other than household contacts) in restaurants, bars, and nightclubs must be spaced 6 feet apart and sitting while being served.
The health department says that the Indiana Department of Homeland Security and the Alcohol & Tobacco Commission will join with local governments to monitor businesses for occupancy, social distancing, and mask requirements.
DCHD also said that like the governor's mandate, the restrictions would be in effect for at least a month.
