Evansville Rescue Mission officials shared one of their residents has tested positive for COVID-19, and is currently receiving care at a local hospital.

Leaders with the shelter cited HIPAA regulations as limiting their ability to share additional specifics about the case.

On Wednesday, 27 people living at the Mission were tested as part of potential exposures and contact tracing. As they await their results, they are quarantining separately throughout the Men's Residence Center.

The organization's president added that the Vanderburgh County Health Department would be helping test the remainder of those living there Thursday. Until then, residents are being asked to remain on the property.

Today's high of 93° not only marks our hottest recorded temperature of the year, but our highest since the afternoon of August 10th of 2020! Despite the oppressive heat, the day itself wasn't necessarily unpleasant; while peak temperatures climbed abnormally high for this time of the year, a weak cold front passing to our south ushered in a breezy northerly wind flow that helped take the edge off that summer-like heat across the Tri-State earlier this afternoon. The evening ahead will remain quite pleasant, albeit mild - expect the mercury to dip from 87° to 75° between dinnertime and 10PM. Between the northerly winds and clear conditions overnight, morning low temperatures will trend toward the upper 50s and low 60s early Tuesday; we'll fall to 60° even in Evansville.
