Leaving the home for essential activities is permitted for outdoor activity to engage in outdoor activity at parks, provided that residents comply with the social distancing requirements as, by way of example and without limitation, walking, hiking, running, or biking. Individuals may go to public parks and open outdoor recreation areas. However, public access playgrounds may increase spread of COVID-19, and therefore shall be closed. 

Social distancing requirements includes maintaining at least six-feet of social distancing from other individuals, washing hands with soap and water for at least twenty seconds as frequently as possible or using hand sanitizer, covering coughs or sneezes into the sleeve or elbow (not hands), regularly cleaning high-touch surfaces, and not shaking hands.

Blood Donations Needed!

In response to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), government agencies recommend limiting social gatherings exceeding 10 people for non-essential activity. It is very important to understand that the American Red Cross mission IS an essential service, like hospitals, grocers, pharmacies, energy and transportation infrastructure, that will remain in service as part of emergency preparedness plans. See the Blood Donation/Drive Fact Sheet for more info from the American Red Cross.

Mayor Fadness Issues Executive Order Declaring Local Disaster Emergency for the City of Fishers. View the declaration here and the full press release here.

The information coming from Federal and state governments have made it clear: the number one priority for you and your family is to implement social distancing. My recommendation to you is to take every action and precaution you can to distance yourself from other individuals outside of your immediate family, even if you are not symptomatic

We are taking the Governor’s directive seriously. We will be enforcing his recommendations of no gatherings of groups larger than 50 and closures of restaurants and bars. As an extension of this, all Fishers Parks and Recreation facilities and playgrounds will be closed.

For business owners and leaders, I’m imploring you to identify ways to decentralize your staff for the safety of our community. For the duration of this situation, we, as your local government, are focused on:

Public Safety

Fishers Fire and Police Departments are operating business as usual and continue to staff and provide enforcement

Food

If you are in need or food insecure, please visit our website where we have a list of those providers serving at this time

Medical Attention

Call your physician to plan for medications or other services you may need in the coming weeks. If you think you have COVID-19, please call your physician’s office BEFORE heading in. If you have a medical emergency, dial 9-1-1.

If you are in need, please call the Coronavirus Hotline at 317-595-3211. More updates will be published when made available.
