Brown County Reopening Safely

Brown County is Safely Getting Back on Track

Even though life as we know it has changed, we’re ready for the new world of travel ahead!

Indiana has reached Stage 4.5 of Indiana’s five stage Back on Track plan. This change replaces the anticipated advancement into Stage 5 as Governor Holcomb announced a two week pause through July 17.

As we continue to reopen, our main mission is to keep YOU, our local businesses, and our residents safe!

We ask that you practice social distancing, wear a face mask, be patient, considerate, and vigilant to ensure that our community is able to remain open.  

What to expect when visiting?

While things in Brown County may be a bit different, we still look forward to hosting you safely.

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:

  • Implementing “contactless” processes and payments wherever possible
  • Significantly increasing cleaning and disinfecting procedures
  • Screening employees for symptoms before every shift
  • Limiting the number of customers in accordance with social distancing guidelines
  • Posting additional policies to follow on their front doors and in their businesses

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

What You Can Do

  • Be cautious and considerate!
  • Wear a face mask
  • 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.

Let’s all stay safe and healthy!
