Indianapolis Conclusion

To be. Some other cities and counties across the state have also adopted regulations that respond to outbreaks in their communities.

Holcom said he supported the decision of Joe Hogsett, Mayor of Indianapolis, and said the new state order would not remove the local authority.

"Holcomb said," Local Courts have always said in strict terms what we can say. “It has happened not just once in the state of Indiana, but. We would like to work hundred percent with those local authorities. "

The Indianapolis stay-at-home order will continue to ban restaurant food and nonfamily businesses, such as movie theaters, gyms and beauty salons.

Hogsett said about a third of Indiana's COVID-19 deaths and infections have been confirmed in the city, and there is no possibility of a recession in new cases.

Simon also plans to reopen seven other shopping centers across the state. A company spokesperson did not respond to questions about the status of its plans on Thursday.

Holcom said he was confident that Simon would meet all state and local requirements.
