COVID Guidelines and Information

Nothing is more important than your safety and comfort, which is why Hamilton County supports and follows the Hoosier Hospitality Promise in collaboration with the Indiana Tourism Association, Indiana Restaurant and Lodging Association and U.S. Travel.

Our promise to you is to work with our attractions, hotels, venues and restaurants as they adapt new ways to serve you, including limiting guest capacity and ensuring space for social distancing; new ways to clean, including regular and thorough sanitation; and new ways to stay healthy, including employee temperature checks. And while the pledge is a promise, it is not a certification program. It's a handshake agreement by establishments and visitors to do this together.

We ask you to wait until the time is right to visit, stay home if you feel sick, and abide by CDC guidelines, including practicing social distancing and wearing a mask.

So, when you’re ready, we look forward to welcoming you to Hamilton County, Indiana, and our communities of Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville, Westfield and the four Northern Towns of Arcadia, Atlanta, Cicero, and Sheridan.

As always, we welcome all visitors to our destination. Hamilton County strives to be inclusive, inviting, and welcoming place, and that hasn’t changed.

Together, we can safely resume travel and reopen Indiana’s hospitality industry.

Indiana Guidelines

Gov. Eric Holcomb’s order includes the following:
• Face coverings are still required.
• All businesses are required to place clearly visible signage at their public and employee entrances notifying all that face coverings are required. Businesses should only admit those who wear face coverings and practice social distancing.
• All customers in restaurants, bars and nightclubs are required to be seated when receiving service. Individuals from non-household parties must be spaced six feet apart at other tables, counters or other seating arrangements.
• All are required to maintain social distancing of six feet in public spaces, whether inside or outside, and especially when with others who are not members of your immediate household.

Hamilton County Guidelines

The Indiana Department of Health has established a color-coded county map that measures weekly cases per 100,000 residents and the seven-day positivity rate for all tests completed. Each county is assigned a color based on the average of scores for the two metrics. The map is updated each Wednesday.

Currently, Hamilton County is in the yellow category.
