Cases are on the rise in McLennan County, please practice social distancing and best practices (hand washing, wearing masks when necessary, etc.).
It is our best defense on future cases.

As we continue to follow the Governor's plan to reopen Texas , it's still SO important to practice social/physical distancing and limit activities outside your household. The local emergency order still requires citizens to only leave their house for 'essential activities.

To avoid a surge in cases, this time is crucial as we continue social distancing and hope for more restrictions to be lifted as we move forward with progress.

Stay home. Save lives. Take care of each other.
