Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that is spreading from person to person in parts of the United States. The risk of infection with COVID-19 is higher for people who are close contacts of someone known to have COVID-19, for example healthcare workers, or household members. Other people at higher risk for infection are those who live in or have recently been in an area with an ongoing spread of COVID-19.

County Judge Signs Second Mass Gathering Order Limiting Gatherings to Less Than 10 People

The Williamson County and Cities Health District announced Wednesday, March 18, 2020, that we have our first cases of the COVID-19 virus in Williamson County. County Judge Bill Gravell issued a second mass gathering order that prohibits social community gathering of 10 people or more through May 11. This applies to churches, weddings, religious services or activities, concerts, funerals, fundraisers and other similar gatherings.

Also, food establishments are ordered to close common dining areas open to the public during the effective period of this Second Order and are encouraged to provide take-away or no-contact delivery food service designed to limit exposure between individuals. The holder of a wine and beer retailer’s permit or mixed beverage permit is ordered to close common indoor and outdoor bar spaces open to the public and is prohibited from allowing consumption on the bar premises during the effective period of this Second Order. View the full order here. 

You will be able to find the details of this order on our website.These are drastic measures that we are taking to reduce the spread of this virus in the community so that our health care facilities will not be overwhelmed in the days to come.
