On a related note, rumors have started to circulate on social media that either Fort Wayne itself or the entire state of Indiana would soon be entering a “lockdown” of sorts. City spokesman John Perlich dismissed that:
“Our office has been made aware that some members of the public are under the assumption that the City of Fort Wayne will be issuing a mandatory shutdown of all activities. That is not true. We continue to stress the importance of social distancing, frequent handwashing, and limiting exposure in public settings. In addition, Mayor Henry is in frequent communication with Governor Holcomb’s office. The State of the Indiana has not issued any type of shelter in place requirements.”
