The Elkhart County mask mandate and limitations on event capacities will end if Gov. Eric Holcomb signs S.B. 5 – a bill that would move power to implement restrictions from the county health officer to the county Board of Commissioners.

The move would come as both Elkhart General and Goshen Hospital are at capacity.
