Gov. Eric Holcomb is urging Christian Hoosiers to safely practice their faith this weekend as people celebrate Holy Week and Easter.

Hoosiers must stay at home as much as possible for another two weeks, through April 20 after Gov. Eric Holcomb officially extended his order Monday.

Holcomb made some changes regarding how businesses must follow the latest "Stay-At-Home" directive.

Essential retail businesses – grocery stores, supermarkets, gas stations, hardware stores, pet stores – can stay open. But they must limit their customers to help observe social distancing guidelines. They must also adjust hours to help accommodate older customers.

Gov. Eric Holcomb announced Friday he will extend the state’s “Stay-At-Home” order through April 20. 

The state’s current order expires at 11:59 p.m. Monday. 

“We’ve taken the two-week approach because it gives us – we’re more nimble to be able to address the executive order in its entirety,” Holcomb says.

Holcomb says he’ll announce new changes to the order Monday, which could include some of what other states have done – like limiting the number of people allowed in stores.
