Pursuant to a meeting of and unanimous votes by the Facility Security Committees for the federal courthouses in the Southern District of Indiana, Chief Judge Tanya Walton Pratt today issued a General Order, effective June 7, 2021, stating that fully vaccinated individuals will be allowed to access public areas of the four courthouses of the Southern District of Indiana without wearing a face covering or observing social distancing. Members of the public who are not fully vaccinated must wear a face covering and practice social distancing throughout the courthouses. An exception may be made for a person providing documentation that he or she is unable, for medical reasons, to wear a face covering. All persons entering the courthouses will be asked a series of health screening questions. Please see the Order or Press Release for full details.
