County Judge Signs Order Allowing Gatherings in Excess of 10 People in the Unincorporated Areas of the County

County Judge Bill Gravell has signed an order effective Thursday, August 13, at 5 p.m., permitting Williamson County residents to have outdoor gatherings with more than 10 people in the unincorporated areas of Williamson County provided the gatherings comply with Governor Greg Abbott Executive Order GA-28, as amended, and future executive orders that may be issued by Governor Greg Abbott. Governor Abbott’s Order GA-28 includes limitations on capacity for events or occupancy limits that still apply. A copy of the Governor's order GA-28 can be found here and the amendment limiting mass gatherings to 10 people can be found here.

This order also follows Governor Abbott’s Executive Order requiring all Texans to wear a face covering over nose and mouth in public spaces.

“I trust that the residents of Williamson County understand the seriousness of COVID-19 and know the precautions that are necessary to protect their health.  If we continue to use mitigation measures, such as wearing face coverings and washing our hands often, we can safely be able to participate in life events. These gatherings will not be as they once were, but we need to celebrate weddings, and unfortunately, we need to be able to bury family members with the support of our family around us,” said County Judge Bill Gravell.
