In response to the current COVID-19 environment, the State of Indiana, Vanderburgh County, and the City of Evansville have issued precautionary guidelines regarding gatherings to reduce the spread of the virus.
The following guidelines are in place in Vanderburgh County as of August 13, 2021:
- Individuals are required to wear face coverings in all county buildings, including Old National Events Plaza.
- Overall attendance at social gatherings and events may take place at up to 100% of facility capacity. However, final decisions surrounding attendance and social distancing measures will be at the discretion of event promoters and organizers. All gatherings at Old National Events Plaza will continue to implement strict sanitation measures at the site where the gathering occurs.
- Venue operators, hosts and/or organizers of a social gathering or event may choose to submit a written safety plan to the local health department seven days before an event to outline steps to be taken to mitigate against COVID-19.
The CDC guidelines highly recommends those who are not fully vaccinated continue to wear masks in public, physically distance themselves from others, stay away from large gatherings, and continue to practice good hand hygiene.
Providing a safe environment for our clients, guests and staff is our top priority. Through public health organizations such as the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), we are staying abreast of the latest updates and developments as they occur. We are also in close communication with our local public health and government officials to determine what additional safeguards may need to be implemented.
Old National Events Plaza will continue to closely monitor the latest developments regarding the COVID-19 for potential impact to our day-to-day operations. In response to growing awareness and concern, Old National Events Plaza follows the precautionary guidelines of the CDC and other public health organizations, which include:
- Increased signage outlining advisable precautions (e.g., frequent hand washing, safety recommendations, etc.)
- Increased cleaning of high touch point areas such as door handles, handrails, light switches, counters, sinks, faucets, purchase devices and elevator buttons with CDC recommended products.
- Increased cleaning and sanitizing of facility public spaces and rest rooms.
- Additional hand sanitizer stations throughout the facility.
