Mayor Richard Molina and the Edinburg City Council unanimously passed a new “Stay Home – Work Safe” order related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the order, all persons living in Edinburg must stay home. Residents may leave home only for essential tasks like going to the doctor, buying supplies, exercising outside or traveling directly to and from work.
In addition, all businesses still operating will have 48 hours to submit a Work Safe plan to the City, detailing measures they are taking to mitigate the potential spread of COVID-19. That includes information on how to minimize the number of employees on-site, working from home and implementing and enforcing distancing of customers and employees as well as hygiene practices.
The new order will go into effect at 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, March 24, 2020.
“The only way to stop the spread of this virus is by having limited contact with others. We want Edinburg residents to Stay Home and Work Safe,” said Mayor Richard Molina. “This disease is dangerous and contagious. We want businesses to keep customers and employees safe in our community. We want everyone to continue to practice good hygiene and maintain a physical distance of six feet or more. The best thing all of us can do right now is stay home.”Order No. 2020 04 Stay Home Work Safe Order
