Mask Up Hoosiers

The state of Indiana is working to get Back On Track with staggered openings of different industries. Indiana is slowly reopening for business, but 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. Through September 30, masks are mandatory in all public spaces in Indiana.

The City of Fort Wayne will be following the Governor’s lead with Indiana’s five-staged opening. For additional information on the City of Fort Wayne’s COVID-19 resources, visit their website
