EDINBURG, Texas – With 1,200 Work Safe certificates now issued, Edinburg’s Stay Home, Work Safe Compliance Teams are hitting the streets daily to ensure compliance, the city said in a press release today.
The Work Safe Plan requires businesses to provide hand sanitation at all entrances for customers. It also includes practices such as ensuring customers and employees stay at least six feet away from each other. The city says businesses not in compliance could be forced to shut their doors.
The Compliance Team is also enforcing Edinburg’s order mandating residents to stay home, unless performing an essential function. The city has doubled the number of police officers patrolling the streets as well as establishing a Park Patrol to keep compliance at City parks.
Anyone found in violation of the Stay Home, Work Safe order could face a $1,000 fine and/or up-to 180 days in jail, stated the release.
