Today marks the beginning of a new phase for the hardest-hit county for COVID-19 cases.
This week Marion County begins easing restrictions for restaurants, bars, and other food establishments, which are able to seat up to 50% of their normal capacity. Outdoor eateries can also move to full capacity for outdoor dining.
Also among the transition, the ability for museums, and entertainment venues to welcome back 50% of their normal capacity.
For gym rats, fitness centers, are also able to welcome back half their capacity.
Churches will be encouraged to limit participation to 75% with no limits for outdoor service.
Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett says Marion County is twice as populous as the state's next most populous county, which is a big reason by restrictions were tighter during stage 5.
The next few weeks will also be pivotal for health care officials, as they keep a watchful eye on the Positivity Rates.
Their goal is to get down to 35 cases per day, and are hopeful Marion County can achieve that by Nov. 1.
