The mask requirement for city and county-owned buildings in the Evansville-Vanderburgh County area has now been lifted.
The Evansville-Vanderburgh County Building Authority (EVCBA) said Thursday that masks were no longer required in city, county, and EVCBA-owned buildings.
The EVCBA originally announced the decision to mandate masks at the Civic Center Complex back in August, saying the decision was made due to the high number of new positive COVID-19 cases in the area.
Mayor Lloyd Winnecke then said that the city would follow suit, mandating masks in all facilities owned and operated by the City of Evansville.
Officials say they'll continue to monitor the current situation and advise accordingly.
