Indiana Gov. rescinds statewide mask mandate

Following the lead of a number of other GOP governors, Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb (R) announced on Tuesday the end of the state’s mask mandate, but will extend the state health emergency through the end of April.

Beginning Apr. 6, the Indiana mask mandate will transition to a mask advisory. The governor reported the change during an online speech to update Hoosiers regarding the state’s COVID-19 plans.

“As always, local governments, businesses and other entities may impose more stringent guidelines, such as choosing to keep mask-wearing mandatory in their facilities,” he said. “They retain the authority to make decisions about COVID restrictions for their operations, and should be afforded the respect, compliance and understanding of all who visit them.”

Holcomb also added he personally plans to wear a mask during many public events. The governor noted, “When I visit my favorite restaurants or conduct a public event, I will continue to appropriately wear a mask. It’s the right thing to do.”

In addition to ending the mask mandate, Holcomb noted public schools will continue to require face coverings. The school requirement will extend through the end of the school year.

State government buildings will also continue to require face coverings at this time.

The announcement follows pandemic restriction rollbacks in other states. Texas, Mississippi and Connecticut have also recently ended mask mandates.

Many states are only now beginning to ease restrictions after a year of COVID-19 protocols. Only a few states, most notably Florida, have remained mostly open in defiance of the Biden administration’s recommendations.

Indiana adds itself to a growing number of primarily Republican led group of states that have reopened in 2021. With the exception of Connecticut, states ending mask mandates have been led by a Republican governor.

IT’s TIME TO DITCH THE WITCH, NANCY PELOSI!

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP in DC and DEMAND NANCY PELOSI BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE ABUSE OF POWER! Can we seriously sit back, do nothing, and allow this vile, evil person to continue her senior role in destroying our country and stripping us little by little of our constitutional rights?

People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

I will soon be 99 years old, and have lived through many presidents, but this one, next to Obama, is two of the presidents who don,t care to much about out great Country, biden is doing just what the speaker of the house tells him, she should be tared, featherd, and caried out on a pole, no one with that much hatred in her should be running our country,, the REPS. should push to have to have her impeached, and run out of Washinton,,, reds do your job, get rid of her—

Pelosi has schemed, and planned for over a decade to grab the White House. In 2008 Obama got elected and no way could she make a case against him, without sinking herself. She thought she could finally do it in 2016. She knew she could impeach Hillary and take over, but Trump ruined that. Pelosi tried her worst to get rid of him. Now she has created the perfect circumstance in dementia Biden, and heels up Harris. Pelosi knew she couldn’t get enough votes to get elected in, so this scheme is her ticket to the presidency.
