Reopening Hidalgo County
Under Texas Governor Greg Abbot's Executive Order GA-18 issued on April 27, 2020, guidance was issued to safely and strategically restart and revitalize all aspects of the Lone Star State—work, school, entertainment, and culture. As such, all Shelter-At-Home orders will expire on April 30, 2020.
In order to continue to prevent the spread and risk of contracting COVID-19, Hidalgo County leaders still recommend that, while no longer required, residents continue practicing good hygiene, physical distancing from others, wearing a facial covering, and continuing to heed guidance from the CDC. As always, vulnerable populations such as the elderly and individuals with compromised immune systems are encouraged to do what is necessary to keep themselves protected and safe, such as staying home.
As businesses begin to re-open and continue to provide services for Hidalgo County residents, many of the procedures implemented while under the Shelter-At-Home order will continue. We encourage residents to continue supporting our local businesses and economy while continuing to utilize convenient measures to remain safe and healthy.
We have compiled resources and information regarding the many different types of services being offered through safe and convenient means, including drive-through, curbside pickup, and even delivery options. We are proud of all the innovative ways that businesses are responding to the needs of consumers, and we encourage all Hidalgo County families to support local businesses during this time.
