PLAINFIELD, In. – The Town of Plainfield is following the guidance of Governor Holcomb to limit the local impact of COVID-19. The Town of Plainfield Town Council President, Robin Brandgard, signed an Executive Order on Friday, November 13th, extending the local state of emergency and directing Town staff to begin implementing changes to some operations. This comes after Governor Eric Holcomb announced the end of Stage 5 and implemented new restrictions based on the state's color-coded map showing viral spread.
These new limitations on Town operations will include:
Brandgard also signed a joint statement from the Central Indiana Council of Elected Officials (CICEO) that reinforces the need for individual actions to help stem the rise in coronavirus cases regionally. The CICEO is a consensus building organization made up of the top elected officials (Mayors and Town Council Presidents) in communities above 10,000 population in Central Indiana.
The Town is working closely with the Board of Health and local emergency personnel to monitor the situation, protect public health and safety, and coordinate our preventive actions. In addition to the CDC’s Steps to Prevent Illness, the Town of Plainfield is urging people to practice social distancing and wear their masks. The Town of Plainfield has already begun restricting internal staff meetings to five or less participants and has encouraged many staff members to work from home.
