**New Changes Made By Congress in December 2020** SUMMARY: In December 27, 2020, new legislation was enacted to extend the life of a vital program available to Main Street businesses: the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). This new legislation creates a second round of PPP loans for eligible businesses, makes new businesses eligible for a firsttime PPP loan (as well as a second-draw loan), and makes other key programming changes. 

UPDATED! Governor Holcomb announced new restrictions to assist in the COVID-19 battle:
  • A statewide cap on all gatherings to the size limits established based on a county’s COVID status (25 for a red county, 50 for an orange county, etc.). There will be no exceptions that can be granted by local health departments (through January 31)
  • Additional limitations on the number of participants allowed at K-12, college and professional sporting events (through January 31)
A recent executive order contains a provision requiring all Indiana businesses to “place clearly visible signage at their public and employee entrances notifying that face coverings are required for all individuals entering the business.”

The Indiana Department of Health has established a color-coded county map that measures weekly cases per 100,000 residents and the 7-day positivity rate for all tests completed. Each county is assigned a color based on the average of scores for the two metrics, and the map is updated each Wednesday at

The Indiana Department of Health has provided the following guidelines to inform local decision-making. The guidelines should be used when counties are in yellow, orange or red status for at least 14 days. The state health commissioner may impose actions when a county is in red status for at least 14 days.

Communities should use the County Metrics Map to make decisions about their businesses, community and social activities.
