What is the legal authority for COVID control measures?
The COVID control measures are outlined in Indiana Code IC 16-41-2-1. Local jurisdictions may make rules that are more stringent than those laid out in the state code, but not less stringent. Rules can be made more stringent either through modification of the municipal health code, which requires City Council approval, or via Public Health Orders, which also requires City Council approval. The Fishers Health Department does not currently have any public health orders or mandates in place for COVID that differ from those outlined in the state code and guidance.
