Some restaurants in Northern Indiana are opening their doors to dine-in customers Monday for the first time in nearly two months. Local restaurant owners have put some measures in place to limit the spread of COVID-19.
The Indiana State Department of Health reported 31 additional deaths Wednesday, bringing the state’s total to 661. The state announced more than 12,000 total confirmed cases, with more than 69,000 Hoosiers tested.
Indiana’s “Stay-At-Home” order has been in place for about a month, drastically reducing operations in the hospitality industry. Restaurants in the state are estimated to lose nearly $1 billion in sales in April.
