New App Lets Users Track Mask Usage

Sep 30, 2020

Researchers at Indianapolis-based Regenstrief Institute are asking people to help collect data on mask usage through a new web app.

While Gov. Eric Holcomb stresses the state is ready to re-open, many local health officials aren’t convinced.

The Indiana State Department of Health reported 77 additional confirmed deaths over the last week, bringing the state’s total to 2,706. The state announced more than 62,000 total confirmed cases, with more than 701,000 Hoosiers tested.

Gov. Eric Holcomb reversed course Friday – the executive order establishing a statewide mask mandate will include no criminal penalty.

Gov. Eric Holcomb says he’s confident he has the legal authority for his order requiring Hoosiers to wear masks in public.
