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.

It was an absolutely gorgeous day across the Tri-State; temperatures climbed back into the upper 40s low 50s area-wide earlier this afternoon. Evansville‘s afternoon high temperature of 49° was our warmest in nearly a week. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will be relatively stable as a breezy southerly wind continues to bolster the mercury throughout the region; temperatures around 42° at dinner time will only fall as low as 41° by midnight. An inbound cold front moving in overnight tonight and early tomorrow morning will begin to generate chances of rainfall as early as the predawn hours on Wednesday.
