To help, we have compiled the latest safety guidelines and recommendations on how to protect yourself and others.
The CDC and Indiana State Department of Health ask travelers to follow the protective steps and guidelines they have outlined. It is highly suggested that you wear a face mask in public spaces and maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from others.
