(LAPORTE, IN) -- The topic on this episode of SOUND OFF is Indiana's mask mandate. Last week, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced the state would lift its mask mandate and open businesses to 100% capacity. When asked whether Indiana will follow suit, Holcomb said at his weekly COVID-19 update that he's more “Indiana-centric” and happy with the direction the state is going. When asked about those other states, Holcomb said, "Good on them, they have great leaders, but I'm very Indiana-centric to get to the light at the end of the tunnel. It will be over when it's over."
Texas, Mississippi, Iowa, Montana, and North Dakota have already lifted their mask mandate, while Alabama and Utah have announced that they plan to remove the mandate in mid-April.
