The Fishers Health Department passed an ordinance Monday night requiring people to wear masks in the city.
The health department recommended the order due to a rise in COVID 19 cases in the city.
The mandate will take effect at 8 a.m. on Friday, July 24, requiring everyone in Fishers, outside of those who meet approved exceptions, must wear a covering on their nose and mouth when at a public indoor place or outdoors when a distance of six feet from people who are not part of their household cannot be maintained.
The order requires Fishers residents to wear a cloth face-covering in all public indoor facilities including, but not limited to:
- Retail and grocery stores
- Restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues
- Salons and personal care facilities
- Gyms and fitness centers
- Office and commercial buildings
- Government buildings
Public indoor locations that refuse to enforce the mask mandate may face enforcement actions by the Fishers Health Department.
