Effective immediately, the University of Southern Indiana will no longer require anyone vaccinated against COVID-19 to wear a mask while on campus.

USI said Wednesday that in accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, fully vaccinated individuals would be no longer required to wear masks indoors or outdoors on campus. 

As for those who haven't received the vaccine, USI says they should continue wearing face coverings indoors and outdoors when distancing is not possible.

The University says it's still recommending social distancing of three feet or more when possible in addition to regular hand sanitizing.

USI says despite the lifting of the mask mandate for fully-vaccinated individuals, those who may be uncomfortable in a group environment where some or many may be unvaccinated, are encouraged to continue wearing a face covering.

University officials said previously that USI would strongly encourage, but not require, all members of the USI community to receive the vaccine.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
