As of Thursday, Aug. 12 at 7:00 a.m., everyone will once again be required to wear masks while inside city-owned buildings in Evansville, Indiana.

The new mask requirement going into effect Thursday also applies to the Civic Center Complex, which includes the Vanderburgh County Courts System building.

The Evansville-Vanderburgh County Building Authority originally announced the decision to mandate masks at the Civic Center Complex, saying the decision was made due to the high number of new positive COVID-19 cases in the area.

Mayor Lloyd Winnecke later said that the city would follow suit, mandating masks in all facilities owned and operated by the City of Evansville.

As for city employees, it will be up to individual department heads/elected officials as to whether or not they'll have to wear a mask while in their own offices.

The rule applies to everyone whether vaccinated or not and will be in place until further notice dependent on COVID-19 conditions in the area.

We headed out to cloudy skies and some damp conditions this morning across the Tri-State. We've been tracking scattered showers for the first part of the day. While it’s been mostly cloudy, there will be some sunshine as soon as we get the rain out of the area. Temperatures are still expected to reach unseasonably warm values this afternoon. With some sunshine and winds out of the southwest highs should have no problem reaching the upper 50s and lower 60s. Clouds will clear out, but the southerly wind flow will keep overnight lows in the low to mid 40s. Tomorrow morning won't be all that bad considering it will be December 2nd.
