Mask Up the Order Again in Local Government Buildings


Rising COVID numbers are prompting local officials to return to mask requirements in government buildings.  

Starting Thursday morning, masks will again be required for staff and visitors to the Civic Center complex.

The masking requirement is for all people in the building regardless of whether they’re vaccinated against the coronavirus. Employees will not be required to wear masks while in their own offices.

That announcement came Wednesday from the Evansville Vanderburgh County Building Authority. In a release announcing the move, officials cited rising COVID numbers as the reason.

Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke says the masking requirement will also be in place for all city owned buildings until further notice. 

The release says officials will continue to monitor the situation and issue any necessary updates to the policy.
