INDIANAPOLIS (WANE) — Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb delivered a statewide address Tuesday evening where he announced that the mask mandate will become a mask advisory on April 6, all Hoosiers 16-years-old and up are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine beginning March 31 and more.
Holcomb’s address comes one year to the day he delivered another statewide address where he issued a stay at home order in an attempt to curtail the spread of the coronavirus.
Since then, the governor has taken multiple steps in fighting the virus, including a mask mandate which may be discussed during Tuesday’s address.
So far 12,537 people have died in Indiana from COVID-19 and 678,416 people have been confirmed as having the virus.
