Monroe County Extends Stay-At-Home Order Until May 15

(BLOOMINGTON) – Monroe County’s stay-at-home order will stay in effect until May 15, according to a Monroe County Health Department release.

Officials extended the stay-at-home order because data and public health indicators do not show that Monroe County is meeting criteria to re-open set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the county is not seeing a decline in COVID-19 cases.

The announcement followed Gov. Eric Holcomb’s release of a 5-step plan to re-open the state. He is allowing local authorities to make their own decisions about guidance in their own counties.
