Indiana's Mask Mandate
Beginning Monday, July 27, the state of Indiana will implement a mask mandate for all counties. The mandate requires that anyone age 8 and older must wear a face mask in indoor public spaces, commercial entities, transportation services or in outdoor public spaces where social distancing is not possible.
Hendricks County Mask Regulations
Please be advised that the Hendricks County Commissioners have mandated that all County employees and members of the public must wear masks, cloth facial coverings, or a face shield (if a physician states you cannot wear a mask or cloth facial covering) while inside County buildings, effective Thursday, July 23. This includes places like the main Hendricks County Parks & Recreation office in Danville and the Nature Center at McCloud Nature Park.
