The Bluegrass State is now increasing their capacity for businesses to 60% today March 5.

Governor Andy Beshear announced earlier this week that he'd be increasing indoor capacity at establishments throughout the state.

The decision to increase capacity was made based on the increasing supply of vaccine doses in the trend of dropping COVID-19 numbers, and other encouraging factors in the state's fight against the virus.

The capacity changes will affect businesses like bars and restaurants, salons and barbershops, movie theaters, recreational facilities, fitness centers, as well as government offices.

Governor Beshear made the encouraging announcement Monday, March 1.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
