CITY COUNCIL MANDATES FACE COVERINGS IN PUBLIC BEGINNING WEDNESDAY, JULY 1, 2020 @ NOON
The Smithville City Council voted unanimously to pass an emergency ordinance mandating citizens to wear face coverings in public. This action is necessary to help control the spread of COVID-19 in the community as we are seeing an exponential increase in the number of positive cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. Bastrop County has 439 positive cases of COVID-19 with 6 fatalities. The City of Smithville has incurred thirteen (13) cases of COVID-19 inside the City limits and eleven (11) cases in the unincorporated area of the 78957 zip code. The reality is that if we cannot get the situation under control as a City/County/State in the next few weeks, our hospitals will be overwhelmed and we will more than likely be facing additional shut-downs (something none of us want). So, please wear your mask, wash your hands, practice social distancing, and stay home if you are sick. A copy of the emergency ordinance is available below.
