Starr County Issues Stay At Home Order


Seven more Texas counties, and their biggest cities, are ordering residents to shelter in place to slow the spread of the coronavirus – and Starr County is among them.  County Judge Eloy Vera signed the stay at home order last night saying the county needs to be proactive.  The order is similar to the one in effect in Cameron County, and contains exceptions for services and individuals deemed essential.  Other stay at home orders were issued Tuesday by elected leaders in El Paso, Tarrant, Harris, Bexar, Travis, and Williamson counties.  They join Dallas, McLennan, and Cameron counties which approved stay at home orders Monday.  Governor Greg Abbott, during a press briefing Tuesday, said he’s concerned that not enough Texans are complying with the recommendation in his state disaster declaration to stay inside, and he’s evaluating whether to issue a statewide stay at home directive to help corral the coronavirus outbreak.
