The Evansville City Council discussed a resolution at Monday's meeting calling to extend the mayor's COVID-19 Executive Orders through next month.

According to City Council President Alex Burton, the council discussed a resolution that shows support for Mayor Lloyd Winnecke's Executive Order that requires a permit for crowds of larger than 125 people. It also requires wearing a mask in most public settings.

If an event/gathering doesn't have an approved plan by the Vanderburgh County Health Department, local law enforcement will ask the attendees to leave. Refusal can lead to further action by law enforcement per city code.

The council is set to vote on the resolution at its next meeting.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
