Covid-19 Social Distancing


Rev: March 7, 2021


Below is taken from AARP. I spoke with several officials for a dance event Indy Dancers is planning for June 2021. With all the precautions in place without official approval ("social distancing for dancing" for inocculated dancers) we could not get Insurance for the event at this time (March 2021).

• Indiana: Gov. Eric Holcomb (R) announced that he is extending, through March 31, an order that implements a county-by-county approach to restrictions. Effective March 1, counties designated as red or orange (areas with the highest risk of coronavirus spread) must limit social gatherings to 25 percent of a facility’s capacity. Counties designated as yellow must limit gatherings to 50 percent of a facility’s capacity. Counties designated as blue can operate at full capacity, as long as social distancing, mask wearing and other precautions are followed. A statewide mask mandate remains in effect. People must wear a face covering when in an indoor public space, when outside if social distancing cannot be maintained and when using public transportation. As of Jan. 3, hospitals no longer had to suspend in-patient elective medical procedures, but they should postpone them if doing so is necessary to provide sufficient capacity for COVID-19 patients. Previously, Holcomb lifted nearly all restrictions on businesses.

Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett (D) announced that, effective March 1, in Marion County, indoor bars and gyms can increase capacity to 50 percent and restaurants can increase capacity of indoor dining to 75 percent.
