After the latest news conference from Indiana Governor, Eric Holcomb today, April 7, 2020, we've learned that while you can still purchase alcohol from a package liquor store, you cannot go inside to make your purchase. Under the latest revision to the executive "stay-at-home" order,
stores that do not sell the necessities of life, such as liquor stores, restaurants and tobacco stores, may remain open only for online or call-in ordering with home delivery (if legally permitted) or curbside pickup and must comply with social distancing and sanitation of applicable areas and other mitigation measures to protect its employees and the public.

As of 11 :59 p.m. on April 7, 2020, all other retail businesses not included above as selling the necessities of life may remain open only for online or call-in ordering with delivery or ~ ~ curbside pickup. These retail businesses shall comply with social distancing and sanitation of applicable areas and other mitigation measures to protect its employees and the public.
