Governor Abbott has issued Executive Order GA-16 on April 17, which permits non-essential retail business to reopen, effective 12:01 AM on Monday April 27, 2020. These businesses may now provide pickup, delivery by mail or delivery to the customer’s doorstep in strict compliance with the terms required by the Texas Department of State Health Services. Importantly, customers may not enter the premises of the non-essential retail store.
I understand the urgency people are feeling to re-open our community and country. Families are struggling to pay bills, businesses are collapsing, and we are all very tired on of the endless stay-home and social distancing restrictions. But, as a nurse, I urge you to stay vigilant and continue to practice safe public health practices. It is my personal (and professional) opinion that re-opening the county at this time is preemptive and we may possibly pay a heavy price for letting down our guard before this pandemic is more controlled. This is an unprecedented and novel event in our recent history and there is much we do not know yet about this virus. However, it is not my position to countermand the Governor’s directive and for those businesses that choose to re-open, and for those customers that want to utilize those businesses, I again urge you to continue to practice social distancing, wearing your masks when you cannot maintain a safe distance from others and staying home if you are sick.
The City Council will be meeting in May, although it will in all likelihood be virtually. The appropriate notices will be posted with a call in number for the citizens to be able to listen to the meeting and speak during Citizens to Be Heard. In the meantime, City Hall services are still being performed and we are available by phone for questions or concerns. You may also notice changes to the City website as we are in the process of revamping and updating our website.
Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone during this trying time. There is a light at the end of tunnel if we remain vigilant and we will get through this together. Stay safe.
