Shortly afternoon on Monday, Indiana Govrnor Eric Holcomb ordered residents to remain in their homes except for essential errands in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus, mirroring similar orders in adjacent Illinois and Ohio.

Holcomb said Monday that the order still allows the state’s 6.8 million residents to seek essentials including groceries and medicine and makes exemptions for employees of crucial industries. However, it does target to enforce penalties on those not following the "carry out only" order that was put in place last week on the state's bars & restaurants.
