On Wednesday, Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, the Vanderburgh County Health Department, and local school officials provided an update on attendance during the winter sports season for Evansville schools.

Only two tickets will be allowed per student-athlete/essential personnel.

No scouts will be allowed at events - though college recruiters will be.

For swimming events at the Lloyd Pool, no spectators will be allowed at all.

The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation, Diocese of Evansville, Evansville Day School, and Evansville Christian Schools are all backing the new attendance plan, which was made in collaboration with the Vanderburgh County Health Department.

We're still waiting on the actual cold front to get here. That should arrive around dawn, bringing mainly light rain. The front may also be responsible for perking up a couple bands of heavier rain and lightning east of Evansville for midday Saturday.
