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.
