If an event/gathering doesn't have an approved plan by the Vanderburgh County Health Department, local law enforcement will ask the attendees to leave. Refusal can lead to further action by law enforcement per city code.

The Executive Order will now be in effect until midnight on Nov. 2, 2020, unless extended again.
