Monroe County will terminate the COVID-19 health order from Monday

The Monroe County Board of Health will meet May 19 to “assess data and consider further updates or changes,” according to the release. “If you are unvaccinated, then masks and distancing remain a vital precaution to ensure your health and the health of those around you.” Caudill said. “Only those aged twelve and older are eligible, so we still have many who are not able to be vaccinated yet.” Source

Masks are still advised for individuals with certain health conditions, including the immunocompromised, and the release states that individuals who are unsure whether they should continue masking should ask their doctor. The release notes that this change is in line with recent guidance from the CDC, which said fully vaccinated people do not need to wear a mask or socially distance when inside or outside. A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after a second dose of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine. 

In the release, Monroe County Health Department Administrator Penny Caudill said the new CDC guidance should incentivize people to get vaccinated. “Our plan was to remove the Health Order once we reached the blue advisory level category on the Indiana Department of Health Covid-19 map. We are on track to reach that goal early next week,” Sharp said in the release.
