The mission of the task force is to advise the mayor on the implementation of Governor Holcomb’s five stage plan. It is our hope that this group will also instill confidence in citizens and businesses to re-engage with one another in a responsible way while protecting the most vulnerable and to serve as a resource for questions and refinement as the city moves through the phases of opening up America.
