INDIANAPOLIS — Gov. Eric Holcomb has announced Indiana will enter Stage 3 of its Back on Track plan Friday, two days before schedule.

Holcomb will sign an executive order Thursday that will not only bring the state into its next phase, but extend prohibition on turning off utilities and filing mortgage foreclosures, as well as extend the deadline to renew driver licenses and vehicle registrations.

Under Stage 3, gyms and community pools can reopen. Social gatherings of up to 100 people will also be allowed. Below is a list of every change:

Holcomb said guidelines for all groups will be announced on Indiana's Back on Track website Thursday.

The governor and Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box said data has shown the state should move to Stage 3, but the exact date for Stage 4 could change as more information comes in.

"We're going to learn a lot in Stage 3," Holcomb said. "We've put June 14 out there, but we don't know until we go through Stage 3."
