The Daviess County Fiscal Court has announced the installation of seven public Wi-Fi hotspots around the county to support students learning virtually.

The Wi-Fi hotspots have been installed at seven different volunteer fire stations, where they'll be available to access 24/7.

The username and password for each hotspot will be posted on signs at each location. Families utilizing the free hotspots are asked to follow health and safety guidelines like social distancing and mask-wearing while on-site.

Below is a list of locations for the public Wi-Fi hotspots:

“These hotspots will enable students to access the Internet, so they can download assignments or other educational resources in support of virtual learning,” explained Daviess County Judge-Executive Al Mattingly. “We also believe the hotspots will be advantageous for adults who need to work remotely during the pandemic.”

Anyone who has questions about the Wi-Fi hotspots or needs assistance connecting to them is asked to contact the Daviess County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) during regular business hours at 270-685-8448.

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
