Henry “concerned” with speed of Governor’s re-opening plan

(WOWO News)

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb is hoping to have everything in Indiana back open by July 4th… but is that timeframe realistic? Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry tells WOWO News he has some concerns about the Governor’s plan:

“I personally am a little concerned about the speed that we are returning to our new normal,” Henry says, while adding that he respects Holcomb and believes the Governor is acting on the best information he has available.

Henry also says that local health officials he has spoken with also feel the plan may be “a little aggressive,” but he adds that nobody will know for sure until COVID-19 cases subside considerably.

  1. Was nice to hear Mayor Henry’s positive comments regarding Menard’s requesting customers to wear masks in their stores. I wish the Mayor would stress the importance of mask wearing to the Fort Wayne public more. I think some, who initially reject the concept, would accept it more willingly if they knew the positive effects something as simple as wearing a face mask in public could provide, not only for themselves, but for others as well plus helping to stop the spread. Perhaps WOWO could also help in this endeavor – public service announcements, etc. . . thank you
