Hoosiers have been ordered to continue wearing masks for another 30 days.
With the first mask mandate set to expire, Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb decided to extend the mandatory face-covering order through Sept. 25.
"On one hand we're pleased that we've been holding steady, steady Eddy Indiana here in terms of positivity rate," Gov. Holcomb said.
"We don't want that to trend up. We want that to trend down even more."
Indiana will also remain in 'stage 4.5' of the state's reopening plan.
Effectively, nothing changes in terms of capacity to restaurants, bars and entertainment venues.

He is just going to keep dragging this out.
Our Governor is such a geek.
I guess he is retiring after this...
Trying to out-DeWine DeWine.
Holcomb won’t have the courage to be the first state to completely open up. He’s a follower weasel.
I’m concerned he’s even worse.
He sure is. Such a weak POC in my opinion. I hope the RNC finds someone to run worthy of having an “R” behind his name.
If masks are on for stage 4.5, what stage is back to normal? “Stage Avogadro’s Number”?

Dear Governor Holcomb,
The Wuhan virus positivity rate isnt such a big deal. How are the hospitalizations and deaths going? Declining, right? Cuz were having better treatments cuz were treating earlier? Then all is good. Why dont you be brave and let the mask wearing be optional? Enough is enough.
Stage 5 would be back to normal. I think some of us got to see it temporarily around Independence Day. Then he got scared and had us backtrack to 4.5.
Hmm... so this current mask mandate isn’t working then?
Tinpot tyrants like anarcho-tyranny
We’re much more sophisticated here. Gov. Coonman Northam said northern Virginia was in “enhanced Stage 1” at one point. Since then, he appears to have given up on the stages bit.
Ah, yes. Penumbras and emanations abound as weak and cowardly governors move the decimal points on their stages so as not to have to make a decision for which they could be held accountable.
Screw him. Dont wear the damned mask.
And Im talking to every Hoosier who would rather not wear one
These despot governors, like mine here in KY, are trying to out-stupid each other.

Unfortunately, Halfwit Holcomb has no opposition for re-election this year. The Governor is a spineless Coward when it comes to making any type of decisions.
