Hoosiers must stay at home as much as possible for another two weeks, through April 20 after Gov. Eric Holcomb officially extended his order Monday.

Holcomb made some changes regarding how businesses must follow the latest "Stay-At-Home" directive.

Essential retail businesses – grocery stores, supermarkets, gas stations, hardware stores, pet stores – can stay open. But they must limit their customers to help observe social distancing guidelines. They must also adjust hours to help accommodate older customers.
