Williamson County extends stay-at-home order

Wednesday, April 8, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

Williamson County has extended its “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order through April 30 following President Donald Trump’s and Gov. Greg Abbott’s extensions of executive orders designed to keep people at home to control the spread of Covid-19. “Challenging times call for us to make hard decisions, but these have been made with the priority to keep our community as safe as possible, especially those who are part of the vulnerable population,” said Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell, who cited a recent UT Austin study that showed reducing social interactions by 90 percent could prevent area hospitals from being overwhelmed and save the lives of thousands.
