o Movie theaters, bowling alleys, and similar facilities;

o Raceways, sports, and music venues; and

o Amusement parks, water parks, and similar facilities.

• Personal services continue operations with restrictions.

• Gyms, fitness centers, and other workout facilities continue operations with restrictions.

• Special or seasonal events including concerts, fairs, and festivals with over 250 people must submit an event safety plan for health department approval at least 7 days before the event.

Marshall County Health Department Administrator Ashley Garcia said, “Please remember these are temporary preventative measures and following best practices will help slow the spread and allow restrictions to be lifted sooner. There will be no victory over the coronavirus pandemic without a sustained, documented decline in the number of new cases.”

The Marshall County Health Department will continue to provide updates as changes occur. Please follow their Facebook page at or go to the Indiana State Department of Health’s website at for up-to-date information on COVID-19.
