(Indianapolis, IN) - Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb announced a mask mandate for the state on Wednesday. It will start on July 27. Holcomb says they will be required for anyone over the age of eight-years-old while inside, in public spaces, and other environments when social distancing is not possible.
Holcomb also said masks will be required in public schools for kids in the 3rd grade and older.
Holcomb said the deciding factors include an increase in COVID-19 cases in the state, an increased hospitalization rate, and working to get kids back in school.
