Safety & Well-Being of Employees Top Concern 

The Hamilton County Commissioners have chosen to extend Resolution No. 7-31-20-02 for another 30 days. The policy requires county employees and people visiting county buildings to wear a face covering when inside all county-owned buildings. The use of masks is only excused for documented medical and health risks.  

Indiana’s mask mandate will end April 6, at which time it will change to a mask advisory. This resolution supersedes that order in all Hamilton County buildings. 

“We want to continue to do everything we can to protect the health and well-being of our employees, our vendors, and our visitors,” says County Commissioner Christine Altman. “While our county’s positivity rate is headed in the right direction, we’re not out of the woods yet. We’ll continue to watch the numbers and revisit the issue again next month.” 

Face coverings are still mandatory in all state buildings and all vaccination and COVID-19 testing sites. K-12 schools will also still be expected to follow the current mask requirements.
