Empty spaces

Many popular places around Fort Wayne are closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, especially as events and other large gatherings have been canceled.

Gov. Eric Holcomb extended the state's stay-at-home order and restrictions on bars and restaurants for two more weeks, until April 20. Health experts estimate the state may not reach the peak in coronavirus cases until mid- to late April.
