EDINBURG, Texas – Effective immediately, city hall will close to all walk-in traffic. However, all city services will continue through email, phone, online, online pay and drive through. City officials say staff is still working to serve the public and no city services will be disrupted.
“We’re taking every precaution for this community, and that definitely includes our city staff,” said Mayor Richard Molina. “We adopted the Stay Home, Work Safe” order at Tuesday’s council meeting. We’re asking people to stay home. We’re asking businesses to provide a safety and sanitation plan. And we’re asking everyone to limit their time in public. That includes taking a hard look at how many people can possibly work from home. We’ve implemented everything we’re asking you to do at City Hall, too.”
City leaders remind the public, only leave home for essential activities such as work or grocery shopping or medical care. Always maintain safe hygiene. Maintain a distance of 6 feet from others. Avoid large gatherings of more than 10 people.
