COVID-19 Information

Indiana State Guidelines

Executive Order 21-09 adjusts Indiana’s statewide face covering mandate to an advisory and lifts other requirements beginning April 6, 2021.

The Indiana State Department of Health has implemented a color-coded system to inform Hoosiers about the status of COVID-19 in each county and across Indiana. The color-coded county map measures weekly cases per 100,000 residents and the seven-day positivity rate for all tests completed. The ISDH will continue to update each county’s status under the color-based system at least weekly at https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/.

What Brown County Is Doing to Keep You Safe

Each business has its own safety plan, but here’s a general idea of how most Brown County businesses are working to keep you healthy:

  • Significantly increasing cleaning and disinfecting procedures
  • Screening employees for symptoms before shifts
  • Implementing “contactless” processes and payments wherever possible
  • Posting additional policies to follow on their front doors and in their businesses, including mask requirements, social distancing guidelines, capacity limits, etc.

You’ll also find hand sanitizing stations throughout the Village of Nashville.

What You Can Do

  • Wear a face covering when inside businesses
  • Abide by CDC Guidelines
  • Practice social distancing. Stay 6 feet apart…in stores, on sidewalks, and on the trails
  • Keep those hands clean. Wash them thoroughly and sanitize often
  • Keep the touching of items and surfaces to a minimum
  • Consider bringing as much of your own food, snacks, and supplies with you from home to limit your trips to the grocery and drug store
  • Stay at home if you are experiencing any symptoms associated with COVID-19

Whenever you are ready, Brown County welcomes you back.
