Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb announced modifications to the Back on Track plan, according to a press release from the governor’s office.

Back on Track will remain mostly in version 4 of the plan until at least July 17, with some restrictions being lifted July 4, the press release states. The changes will push most of Indiana in a 4.5 phase of the plan.

“While most of our health indicators remain positive, our data indicates a need to be extra cautious, which is why we will pause much of our Back on Track roadmap,” Holcomb said in the release. “I urge Hoosiers to maintain vigilance in social distancing and wearing masks so we can continue to reopen our state for business.”

Elkhart County will be an exception to the lifted restriction, remaining fully in version 4 of the plan.

Lifted restrictions include allowing fairs, festivities and youth camps to open up. As well as allowing horse races to begin with 50 percent capacity.

School activities will be allowed after July 6 and schools may begin their academic year starting today.

Other restrictions will remain in place such as dining room food service at 75 percent capacity, the 50 percent capacity in movie theaters, bars, nightclubs, bowling alleys, raceways and more.

The state will also continue its 250-person limit on social gatherings.
