A new campaign is encouraging employers in the Hoosier State to talk to their employees about receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.

The Indiana Chamber and the Wellness Council of Indiana say their "COVID Stops Here" campaign aims to celebrate employers that have high vaccination rates among employees while also encouraging more Hoosiers to receive the vaccine.

"We strongly encourage employers across Indiana to talk to their staff members about the need to get vaccinated and keep track as more staff members get the shot," the Indiana Chamber said. "Then, as your workplace vaccination rate reaches at least 70%, let us know! We will help celebrate your achievement and use your success to encourage other employers to do the same."

Through the campaign, workplaces that meet the requirements for a "COVID Stops Here" campaign designation will receive a media kit that will help promote that designation both in the workplace and community.

Different levels of achievement are available through the campaign. A workplace where 70% of employees are vaccinated would receive a "Bronze" designation, all the way up to a "Platinum" designation, which is awarded in workplaces where 100% of staff is vaccinated.

Employers interested in signing up for the COVID Stops Here campaign can do so by visiting the Indiana Chamber website.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
