Mask Up Hoosiers

The fight against COVID-19 is far from over. Wearing a face mask is one of the simplest, most effective ways to slow the spread of the virus, but we need everyone to do their part to keep our state safe. Masking is recommended in situations when distancing is not possible. Mask and distancing requirements at each locations may vary. 

The Fort Wayne community is also taking additional measures to protect patrons, visitors, and customers. See below for updates on new and improved safety measures being put in place to protect you.

In Downtown Fort Wayne, commonly touched outdoor surfaces will be periodically disinfected utilizing a registered EPA and Certified American Chemistry Council Tier One disinfectant, which kills the virus a minute after contact. Surfaces being cleaned include:

  • Newspaper Boxes 
  • Streetscape Litter/Recycling/Cigarette Receptacles 
  • Door Handles at Parking Garages 
  • Cross Walk Signal Buttons 
  • Bike Racks 
  • Parking Meter Keypads 
  • E-Scooters and Bike-share handles
