Governor extends COVID-19 Emergency Executive Order through June 30

Governor Eric Holcomb signed Executive Order 21-14 to extend the public health emergency. Continuation of the public health emergency means that the Indiana Optometry Board's waiver of the 8 hour limit on self-study CE (including online and virtual CE) continues in effect through June 30, 2021. All self-study CE must include a post-test. All directives in executive orders which have continued throughout the public health emergency will be rescinded and cease on June 30. This includes the CE waiver.

IOA offers 29 hours of recorded virtual as well as other online continuing education courses.  Click here for details!

IOA recommends following CDC mask guidelines

Although Indiana's COVID-19 mask mandate ended on April 6, IOA recommends continued adherence to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendation that face masks be worn in Optometric offices by the public and staff.  Healthcare offices attract people of varying ages and with various medical conditions.  Adherence to mask use ensures that all Hoosiers will continue to have access to healthcare in a safe environment that suits their age and the condition of their health. For more information, the AOA has released updated guidance for optometrists here.
