Morgan County is Open.

When you're ready to visit, we'll be here, ready to welcome you.

We look forward to welcoming you to Morgan County, Indiana, whether it's for a short day trip or a week's vacation. Nothing is more important to us than the safety and health of our visitors and industry employees and local residents, which is why Visit Morgan County supports the Hoosier Hospitality Promise in collaboration with other destinations across the state, the Indiana Tourism Association, Indiana Restaurant and Lodging Association and US Travel. We encourage you to stay informed and follow any guidance offered by national and local authorities. 

There are no travel restrictions in place at this time, though travelers are encouraged to always exercise healthy habits when traveling and to follow any and all guidance issued by public health officials. Indiana is now utilizing a color coded system of advisory levels to help you gauge the safety or risk involved with visiting an Indiana county. Levels are detailed below. 

The majority of our local restaurants and retail establishments remain open for business in Morgan County, though a few are operating on a carryout only basis, or delaying opening for a variety of reasons. Please call ahead prior to visiting if you have questions. We will continue to update our website with information as we receive it. 

Many previously scheduled events, particularly events expecting large crowds, are being rescheduled, so please call ahead to check the status of events and specific refund policies. Morgan County area attractions, hotels and other venues are open for business, and have instituted additional protective measures in order to safeguard the health and well being of their visitors. We encourage travelers to call ahead to confirm your plans and ensure that you are aware of any changes. Area parks, trails and other outdoor areas are still accessible and are a great way to safely get out of the house as you practice social distancing. Here are some of our favorite paved trails and open spaces

Visit Morgan County is working with state and local officials, national travel industry authorities and our local hospitality partners to take proper precautions now, and to continue to promote healthy and positive travel experiences to our area in the future. Our office is currently open to the public and visitor information is available in public areas of our building, though masks are required to enter. We are accessible via email and messaging on our social media accounts. We will continue to monitor those accounts and post updated information as soon as possible to ensure that our visitors know what to expect as we all adapt to new safety procedures. 

Watch for updates from state officials. Individuals are still encouraged to practice social distancing, frequent hand washing, mask wearing, and other safety measures. We will welcome your visitation to our area again as soon as you feel safe to do so.

Mask Mandate Still in Effect

Governor Holcomb announced a mandatory face mask policy for the state of Indiana in July. The order applies to anyone age 8 or older in public indoor spaces, on public transit, outside when social distancing is not possible, and in schools. Indiana joins all of its neighboring states as well as states throughout the country in mandating the use of face masks in public indoor spaces. This mask requirement remains in effect, as do social distancing recommendations.  

County Advisory Levels 

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 test completed. Each county is assigned a color based on the average of scores for the two metrics. Details on what each color signifies and the basic regulations associated with that color are listed below. The map is updated each Wednesday and the current version can be found at coronavirus.in.gov, along with additional more specific requirements for each level.
