HIDALGO COUNTY, Texas — Hidalgo County Judge Richard F. Cortez issued a Third Amended Emergency Order aimed at the reopening of select services, following Governor Greg Abbott’s order.

According to a release, businesses that did not fall under essential under the previous order can now resume operations through pickup, delivery by mail or delivery to the customer’s doorstep.

“My decision to limit certain business activities in Hidalgo County was based on sound medical advice and the primary concern was the well-being of our citizens,” Judge Cortez said in the release. “Thankfully, the number of those testing positive for COVID-19 remain generally low and I have always been mindful of the impact these orders are having on people.”

The order will also allow elective medical, surgical and dental procedures to be performed again, said the release.

Existing prohibitions regarding dining and bar facilities will remain in place; existing curfews shall remain in effect; people should abide by physical distancing rules; and restrictions placed on nursing homes, state supported living centers, assisted living facilities and long-term care facilities shall remain in effect.
