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.
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.”
