Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb recently announced the mask-wearing mandate will be lifted Tuesday.
Masks will still be required in all state buildings and at vaccination and COVID-19 testing sites, but nowhere else unless counties and local governments require them for entrance.
Fulton County Commissioners stated during their Monday meeting the intent to follow the governor’s order with nothing stricter enacted locally. They will, however, leave it open to department heads to monitor as to whether or not masks are needed under certain situations.
Fulton County is marked as under Yellow on the state’s most recent advisory map. Kosciusko, Starke and Wabash are also marked as Yellow. Miami, Pulaski, Cass and Marshall have Blue status/.
School systems in the state will stick with mask wearing during school hours and at school events until the end of the school year.
