Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett issued a public health order requiring all residents to wear face coverings in public spaces, according to a statement from his office.
The mandate requires residents to wear face masks indoors and outdoors when in public spaces, according to the statement.
“This isn’t complicated. It’s a piece of cloth that could save your life and the lives of those around you. It is the right thing to do,” Hogsett said.
The order will go into effect July 9.
