An executive order in Evansville currently limits social gatherings to 125 people. The order was put in place to try and prevent Coronavirus from spreading in the River CIty and Vanderburgh County. The order from Mayor Lloyd Winnecke went into effect Monday and will remain in place for seven days.
Any events where more than 125 people are expected must now submit a plan to the Vanderburgh County Health Department for approval. Health department officials then can decide whether to approve, deny or make changes to the submitted plans.
On Wednesday, Mayor Lloyd Winnecke joined 44News This Morning to discuss the current order as well as plans moving forward.
