first_imgStatewide —On Monday,  Governor Eric J. Holcomb today issued a new two-week Stay At Home order designed to limit interactions. While the Stay At Home order continues mostly as is, modifications and restrictions have been made to limit interactions among people.Retail businesses that provide necessities of life may remain open but should limit the number of customers in the establishment at any given time; implement hours for elderly and other vulnerable populations, as well as limit hours of operation to restock and clean; and comply with all mitigation measures to protect employees and the public. A list of such businesses is included in the executive order.All other retail businesses may remain open if they restrict sales to online or call-in ordering with delivery or curbside pickup.Professional services should be conducted virtually or by telephone.All campgrounds will be closed except for those who use recreational vehicles or cabins as their primary residence. State parks remain open to daily visitors.Hoosiers are reminded that all public and private gatherings of any kind that include more than 10 people are prohibited.All employers, regardless of type, must continue to comply with the Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration (IOSHA) standards and safety and health standards established and enforced by IOSHA. IOSHA is actively accepting and investigating complaints of violations. The complaint process may be accessed at https://www.in.gov/dol/In addition to IOSHA investigations, Gov. Holcomb has directed the creation of a multi-agency enforcement response team, led by the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission to respond to and investigate other violations of the new order. Much like the enforcement of the restaurant, bar and nightclub executive order, this team will be charged with helping business owners comply with the order before issuing a directive to close a business.last_img
