Monroe County's stay-at-home order will stay in effect until May 15, according to a Monroe County Health Department release. Data and public health indicators do not show that Monroe County is meeting criteria to re-open set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The announcement followed Gov. Eric Holcomb’s release of a 5-step plan to re-open the state. He is allowing local authorities to make their own decisions about guidance in their own counties. The release also said there was not a decline in COVID-19 cases in the county, which is at 126 confirmed cases as of May 1.
