The Hunt County Commissioners Court has issued a disaster declaration for the county that includes a stay-at-home order. The order will go into effect at 11:59 p.m. Tuesday.
According to the Greenville Herald Banner, “The measure is similar to the order issued Sunday afternoon in Dallas County, under which anyone not working under an essential service must stay at home. Essential services include health care operations, grocery stores and pharmacies and businesses providing critical infrastructure. Monday’s resolution calls for all county buildings to be closed until April 3, by which time the commissioners will have met again and will address whether to extend the measure.”
There have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Hunt County.
