Old National Event Plaza Hosts Courts, Introduces Safety Measures

EVANSVILLE, IN – The Old National Events Plaza partially reopened on Tuesday, May 26, 2020 to host three Vanderburgh County Superior Courtrooms. In a transition plan outlined by the County Circuit and Superior Courts, proceedings for Juvenile, Small Claims and pro se misdemeanor matters will be held at Old National Events Plaza through July 3, 2020, and possibly longer.

Only attorneys, parties, witnesses, and those with official business in the County Clerk’s office will have access to Old National Events Plaza, and strict safety measures will be in place. Those entering the venue will be required to wear facemasks and be screened for possible COVID-19 exposure. The process includes a brief four question health survey and temperature check via infa-red touchless thermometer at points of entry to the Old National Events Plaza.

In addition, Old National Events Plaza has installed social distancing markers throughout the facility and designed room layouts to accommodate a minimum of 6’ between parties inside the courtrooms and waiting areas. Other venue safety measures introduced under Stages 2 and 3 of Governor Holcomb’s “Back on Track Indiana” plan include:

- Increased availability of hand sanitizer throughout the facility.

- An isolation area where guests that become ill while at the facility can be isolated and receive preliminary medical treatment.

- Increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting in all public and service areas.

- Highly prevalent signage and communication of safety protocols throughout the facility.

- Consideration for longer ingress windows and controlled egress plans.

- Post-event reviews with venue staff and clients to assess health and safety operations.

A comprehensive Operations Recovery and Reopening Plan has been developed and will guide Old National Events Plaza through the five stages of reopening. The plan will be closely monitored and adjusted in the coming weeks and months to appropriately respond to local conditions and updated guidelines.

The presentation of a complete communications plan, designed to introduce the public to new safety protocol, is included and planned under Stage 4. More detailed information regarding Old National Events Plaza’s Operations Recovery and Reopening Plan is available upon request.
