(INDIANAPOLIS) – Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb will not impose a statewide mask mandate inside State buildings.

That announcement was made, despite federal guidance that masks should be worn indoors regardless of vaccination status. Holcomb says he won't reinstate a statewide mask mandate or other restrictions, instead he will leave such decisions to local officials.

Recent data shows the number of Indiana counties approaching high risk for community spread of COVID-19 is on the rise.
