Reopening safely in Lafayette-West Lafayette

In Lafayette-West Lafayette, the well-being of residents and visitors is our priority and so we continue to follow local, state, and federal guidelines to ensure safety, health and peace of mind. No organization is able to handle all of this alone — we are all in this together.

Indiana's Coronavirus Response for the state can be found here. Currently, Lafayette-West Lafayette is in Blue.

Mask Mandate: Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb lifted his mask mandate April 6, 2021, changing it to an advisory due to the ongoing pandemic. This means it is still recommended to wear a mask in public spaces, but not required. Local governments and businesses do have the authority to enforce stricter mandates when it comes to wearing masks. Tippecanoe County government is not currently enforcing anything stricter. However, individual Tippecanoe County businesses can enforce their own policies under the advisory.

The Tippecanoe County Health Department full order for restaurants and bars can be found here. Additional recommendations for events and businesses from the Tippecanoe County Health Departments can be found here.

Our city officials are working tirelessly to be sure that Lafayette-West Lafayette reopens safely and that you have the resources you need as you plan and begin to travel.  Those resources are as follows:
