Hays County Judge Implements ‘Stay at Home, Work Safe’ Order and Curfew for Hays County Residents beginning 11 p.m. March 26
Hays County Courthouse, San Marcos, TX (March 25, 2020) – Hays County Judge Ruben Becerra today issued a countywide order for Hays County residents to stay-at-home beginning at 11 p.m. March 26 through 4 a.m. April 10. A curfew from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. during the same timeframe is also in effect and exempts essential workers. The Order could be rescinded or extended as necessary.
In the Order, day care facilities that serve essential workers can remain open, with restrictions on how they operate in order to help ensure children and employees do not spread the virus. Healthcare businesses, grocery stores, hardware stores, news media, gas stations, restaurants offering to-go and/or delivery of food, and many other essential businesses will not have to close. Persons providing electrical, plumbing, and other essential services can continue to work, as can those who work from home.
All public or private gatherings of any number of people occurring outside a single household or living unit are prohibited, but nothing in the Order prohibits the gathering of members of a household or living unit. People may still go outside to exercise - walking, hiking, running, dog-walking, etc. - provided they practice social distancing guidelines and keep six feet of space between themselves and others who do not live in their same households.
Hays County Judge Ruben Becerra said, “I have been working with the mayors in Hays County to design a Stay at Home, Work Safe Order that everyone is comfortable with, and worked tirelessly with our General Counsel to make the Order easy to understand.”
The entire Order, with all the exceptions and inclusions, can be read here.
