Link to Emergency Mask Ordinance
During a special-called meeting on August 26, 2020, the Smithville City Council unanimously voted to extend the mandatory mask ordinance until November 9, 2020. The number of COVID-19 cases in Bastrop County continues to rise with 1,561 residents infected and 25 confirmed fatalities since the county-wide disaster declaration on March 16, 2020. Extending the mandatory mask ordinance is in the best interest of the community. The City Council will re-assess the COVID-19 situation in November and decide whether to extend the mandatory mask ordinance again or allow it to expire. In the meantime, the City of Smithville encourages everyone to continue following CDC guidelines to maximize protection against COVID-19 (e.g., wash hands, cover your cough, stay home if sick, wear a mask, and socially distance).
