The email, which was sent on Friday evening, states contact tracing lead the USI Dean of Students Office to link several cases to the organization.

USI has not said which group the cases are tied to, but that all members will be required to get a COVID-19 test and report the results to campus officials.

Dean of Students, Dr. Jennifer Hammat, is reminding the USI community of their responsibility to each member.

Self-monitoring and reporting will continue to be vital in reducing the spread of COVID-19 in our community." - Dr. Hammat.

The Tri-State is about to witness a metric ton of change over the next 36 hours or so, but before we get to the meat of the forecast let's focus on the hearer and the now - after seeing an absolutely gorgeous start to the work week with afternoon highs nearing the 70° mark and little to no cloud cover, clear skies will linger through the evening ahead and into tomorrow morning as temperature gradually dwindle into the upper 30s and low 40s area-wide. We'll fall to 42° in Evansville setting the stage for yet another mild, albeit far less quiet Tuesday ahead.
