Movie theaters and public playgrounds will remain closed in Indiana for at least three more weeks under revisions to the state’s coronavirus reopening plan signed by Governor Eric Holcomb on Thursday.
The state’s business and gathering restrictions are being further eased for most of the state beginning Friday. The Indiana State Department of Health announced that the total number of deaths among people with confirmed or presumed coronavirus infections has topped 1,900.
Holcomb signed the new executive order for a second round of easing many restrictions that were first imposed under the statewide stay-at-home order that was first imposed on March 25th.
The new order, which is in effect through June 13, allows social gatherings of up to 100 people and retail stores and malls to operate at 75% capacity. Gatherings have been limited to 25 people and stores to 50% capacity under the state’s first easing of restrictions that took effect May 4.
In addition, gyms, fitness centers, community pools and campgrounds will also be allowed to open under rules limiting the number of people and for distancing and cleaning.
