What's allowed during Stage 2

Despite some restrictions being lifted statewide as of Monday, May 4, Hoosiers 65 and older, or those with high-risk health conditioned are asked to continuing self-quarantine or self-isolation. In all cases, compliance with CDC guidelines is required.

Gatherings of up to 25 people for events such as birthday parties, wedding receptions, Mother's Day gatherings and other events , are now allowed, as long as CDC guidelines for social distancing are maintained.

Personal services, such as hair and nail salons, barber shops, spas and tattoo parlors may reopen, but by appointment only. Employees are required to wear face coverings and work stations spaced to meet CDC guidelines. Clients also are to wear face coverings, if possible.

Restaurants and bars that serve food may open to 50 percent capacity on Monday, May 11. Bar seating will remain closed, and live entertainment prohibited.

Religious services, such as weddings, funerals and baptisms, may resume on Friday, May 8, but must be driven by social distancing guidelines, and protections provided for those at high-risk.

Pools, playgrounds, gyms and fitness centers, and campgrounds will be allowed to reopen May 24.
