“The increasing transmission rate and movement into the WCCHD red phase is a great opportunity to remind people during this Thanksgiving season to wear a mask, wash hands frequently, and keep six feet of distance from others not in your household. While the number of cases has increased, other indicators, such as the hospitalization rate for our region, are below Governor Abbott’s threshold for adopting more stringent guidelines under Executive Order GA-32. Personal protective measures are the best way to keep ourselves and those we care about safe," said County Judge Bill Gravell.

Throughout the pandemic response, one of Williamson County’s main goals has been to protect those most vulnerable in our community from the spread of COVID-19. As a continuing commitment to that goal, the Williamson County Commissioners Court approved an interlocal agreement with the Williamson County and Cities Health District (WCCHD) to allow Williamson County EMS Community Health Paramedics (CHP) to work with them on grant-funded activities to conduct COVID-19 assessments and education at long-term care facilities.
