Governor Holcomb Announces State to Stay in Stage 4.5 of the Back On Track Indiana Plan; Statewide Requirement for Face Coverings Extended
Governor Eric J. Holcomb announced the state will remain in Stage 4.5 of the Back On Track Indiana plan through at least September 25.
“As we actively track our health indicators and monitor the data, we continue to see the need to maintain our current levels found on Indiana’s Back On Track roadmap,” Gov. Holcomb said. “By exercising caution, good hygiene, wearing masks and engaging in proper physical distancing, we can all help slow the spread of COVID-19 so when prudent, we can further reopen our state for business.”
Gov. Holcomb has used data to drive decisions since the state’s first case of the novel coronavirus in early March and he continues to do so as the state continues a sector-by-sector reset. The state will continue to monitor and respond to these four guiding principles:
- The number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients statewide has decreased for 14 days
- The state retains its surge capacity for critical care beds and ventilators
- The state retains its ability to test all Hoosiers who are COVID-19 symptomatic as well as health care workers, first responders, and frontline employees
- Health officials have systems in place to contact all individuals who test positive for COVID-19 and expand contact tracing
Through at least September 25, the following restrictions will continue:
- Social gatherings following the CDC’s social distancing guidelines will be limited to up to 250 people. This limit applies to wedding receptions, parties, and other events where people are in close physical contact for extended periods of time, particularly indoors.
- Dining room food service may continue operations at up to 75 percent capacity as long as social distancing is observed. Bar seating in restaurants may continue operations at 50 percent capacity. Bars and nightclubs may continue operations open at 50 percent capacity as long as they adhere to social distancing guidelines.
- Cultural, entertainment and tourism sites may continue operations open at 50 percent capacity.
- Movie theaters, bowling alleys and similar facilities may continue operations open at 50 percent capacity.
- Amusement parks, water parks and similar facilities may continue operations open at 50 percent capacity. Reservations are encouraged to limit the number of customers at any one time.
- Raceways may continue operations open at 50 percent grandstand capacity.
Other social gatherings and meetings remain limited to no more than 250 people.

Governor Announces Mandatory Face Coverings Statewide
Governor Eric J. Holcomb announced the statewide face covering mandate will go into effect on July 27.
Due to COVID-19 data reflecting upward trends, Governor Holcomb announced masks will be mandatory statewide beginning Monday, July 27. Determining factors for the mask mandate include:
- Get children back to school and keep Indiana businesses open and operating
- Increase in COVID-19 positivity rate
- Increase in number of Hoosiers hospitalized for COVID-19
- Additional counties seeing more cases
- Increase in cases and positivity rates in neighboring states
Governor Holcomb signed Executive Order 20-37 which includes more details regarding the statewide mask mandate. The statewide mask mandate does allow for a few exceptions.

Introduction of the ISCA's New Executive Director
Jessaca Turner Stults
I’m happy to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the Indiana State Chiropractic Association members as the new Executive Director. I’ve had the opportunity to take part in many legislative issues that have positively impacted the care you provide to your patients. It is that work that makes me excited to help preserve, protect and promote your profession now and into the future in the state of Indiana.
I am Jessaca Turner Stults, and I serve as the managing partner of The Capitol Group (formerly TSS Capitol Group) which I founded in 2010. I began my legal career as a deputy prosecutor in Marion County then moved into governmental affairs. In 2006, I worked as the Legislative Director for the Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA), the State’s largest agency. In 2007, I became General Counsel of FSSA, while maintaining my role as Legislative Director for the agency. I advocated before the Indiana General Assembly protecting and monitoring FSSA’s interests and was instrumental in the passage of the Governor’s Healthy Indiana Plan.
The Capitol Group has been working with the ISCA for a number of years and we have a team of dedicated individuals that wake up each day prepared to advocate for our clients, their mission and goals. We are both excited and humbled to have the opportunity to manage your association and advocate for you, especially during a time when healthcare is under the microscope. We have the education, resources, dedication and relationships to educate the Indiana legislative body, Executive Branch, and other stakeholders on the importance of protecting chiropractic care.
I’m pleased to be trusted by your leadership and executive committee and know the future is bright with our partnership. We have exciting things in store for the ISCA and our goal is to become a stronger and more useful organization to enhance your membership interests and legislative presence as the Indiana State Chiropractic Association. We are Stronger Together.
Let’s preserve, protect and promote the chiropractic profession, together.
