Williamson County Announces Closures to Prevent COVID-19 Spread

March 16, 2020 (Williamson County, TX) -- Williamson County has implemented measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19, which includes the canceling and postponing of mass gatherings and community events. Below is a list of events held by Williamson County that have been canceled or postponed to a later date.

  • The ribbon cutting for the San Gabriel Ranch Bridge over Lackey Creek near Liberty Hill, which was expected to be held March 17, has been canceled.
  • The Williamson County Expo Center has cancelled all reserved and scheduled events. Staff will re-evaluate what will happen with events scheduled after April 12, every Monday and update accordingly.
  • The Southwest Williamson County Regional Park has canceled all softball, soccer and cricket league practices and games.
  • The Williamson County Parks and Recreation Department canceled all pavilion rental reservations with group size of 50 or more for Southwest Williamson County Regional Park, Champion Park, and Berry Springs and Park Reserve.
  • Learn How to Fish, the county’s annual free-family-event, has been suspended and will be held at a later date.
  • Vern’s No Frills 5K held every third Saturday of the month at Berry Springs Park and Reserve has been cancelled for March 21.
  • The Williamson County Justice of the Peace Precinct 3 Summer Youth Resource Fair that was scheduled for April 14, 2020 has been canceled.

Along with these event cancellations, Williamson County has implemented mitigation strategies to encourage social distancing.

The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office is following state orders and has suspended jail visitation until it is terminated by the Office of the Governor or until the March 13, 2020, disaster declaration Governor Greg Abbott signed is lifted or expires. Attorneys will be allowed visitations, but they will have to be screened prior to entering the facility.

In addition, our Juvenile Justice Center has enacted temporary procedures for phone visits only.

The Williamson County Justice Center remains open to fulfill its essential mission; however, it is using mitigation strategies to reduce public gatherings in the building. Through April 1, judges are temporarily suspending jury trials to avoid the large gathering of potential jurors, and courts will limit activity in the courtroom to maintain no more than 20 people in the courtroom at a time.

Williamson County EMS is suspending all public education classes through Thursday, March 27. The department will follow CDC and WCCHD guidance before addressing when to restart these classes. Other public outreach activities, such as show-and-tell events and civilian ambulance rides, also are suspended. 

Williamson County CSCD is also closed to the public and is utilizing telephone communications.  Central Texas Treatment Center is also closed to all visitors and is no longer accepting new referrals.

We appreciate our residents’ patience as we work to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and shift our resources to support our efforts in keeping everyone safe. Look for further updates on www.wilco.org/COVID-19.
