Gov. Eric Holcomb on Friday announced a 5-stage plan to reopen the state that has been crippled – like all others – by the coronavirus for the last 6 weeks.

Indiana began its “sector by sector by sector reset” of the state’s economy on Monday, with the ultimate goal to get “back on track” by July 4.

Gov. Eric Holcomb on Friday announced a 5-stage plan to reopen the state that has been crippled – like all others – by the coronavirus for the last 6 weeks.

As of Monday, the essential travel restriction was lifted, and gatherings of up to 25 people are now permitted. Retail shops including shopping malls can open with 50 percent capacity.

This is just the start. By May 8, Indiana churches can convene, with social distancing guidelines in place. On May 11, restaurants and bars that serve food can reopen with 50 percent capacity, and barber shops and tattoo parlors can open by appointment.

Guidelines will be lessened even more on May 24, and even more on June 14. On July 4, major events like fairs and festivals can resume, and retail stores and restaurants can operate at full capacity.
