Stay at home doesn't mean stay indoors

Back To Front Page


The Porter and Chesterton police departments have begun to receive complaints from residents reporting that neighors "are not staying inside their houses,” that “they’re outside their homes,” and that “they’re in their yards.”

All of which, in fact and actually, is altogether permissible under Gov. Eric Holcomb’s stay-at-home order issued on Monday.

That order explicitly states that folks may recreate outdoors, may walk or bike or hike or run, so long as they actively practice social-distancing and do not recreate in groups of more than 10.

As the Porter PD put it in a statement released today, “It is apparent that the intent of the order is to remain ‘at’ your residence and if outside to practice social distancing of six feet or greater.”
