INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — The governor's stay-at-home order doesn't just make an exception for essential workers to be out on the roads.

Under the order, you are still allowed to run an errand, check on a family member, go to a doctor oppointment, etc. and you will not be pulled over.

Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter said he has heard some reports of officers pulling people over for violating the stay-at-home order. He said that should not be happening.

He also said there is not a ticket or citation and people do not need to keep a document in their car establishing they are an essential worker.

Superintendent Carter said he had gotten word of a farmer that had been pulled over for being out on the road and said he called the farmer to make them aware that should not have happened.
