FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- Due to Indiana's growing number of cases, the state has been placed on a travel advisory list for two nearby locations this week, in the city of Chicago, Illinois and the state of Ohio.
"They're doing the right thing if they want to get it under control. That's probably the right thing to do,"
Indiana reached the highest number of confirmed cases in a day Friday with more than 2,300 and 22 additional deaths.
Fort Wayne resident Susan Krise said everyone is doing what they want.
"Everybody is going to go to the beat of their own drum and do what they feel is right. There's some that wear masks. There's some that don't," Krise said.
The state says this is the largest one-day total since the pandemic started.
Since Labor Day and Stage Five of the Back on Track Plan, officials with the Allen County Health Department say we could see another spike as people continue to gather, saying cases can be traced back to weddings and parties here locally.
Fort Wayne Katherine Grepke said she doesn't plan on traveling and she's not staying in the house as cases increase.
"We can not live in fear. We have to live our lives. That doesn't mean we can't be smart. We don't have to be so petrified that we are afraid to leave our house," Grepke said.
Kendallville resident Jesse Campbell said everything will go as planned as far as holiday festivities with his son and family unless the state shuts down again.
"I would like to take him trick or treating his first time and Thanksgiving we're planning on doing normal things, but if things get canceled then of course that's out of my control."
