City leaders in Jasper, Indiana, are now requiring everyone to wear masks while inside city-owned buildings.

The city's mask mandate went into effect on Thursday and will be in place until further notice, dependant on current COVID-19 data in the area.

Currently, Dubois County is in the "Red" on the state health department's COVID-19 County Metrics Map, which indicates a high rate of COVID-19 spread in the area.

The City is also encouraging everyone to practice good hygiene and to stay home if they're feeling sick.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
