Clay County is no longer exempt from Texas Executive Order GA-29
We have received word from The Texas Division of Emergency Management that as of October 29th, Clay County is no longer exempt from Texas Executive Order GA-29 as Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) data shows that Clay County has 35 new cases during the previous 14 day period. Clay County will be eligible to reapply for this exemption in 14 days if the county maintains 30 or less new COVID-19 cases during that timeframe.
This means that we are required to comply with all aspects of the Governor's Order GA-29.
Every person in Texas shall wear a face covering over the nose and mouth when inside a commercial entity or other building or space open to the public, or when in an outdoor public space, wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social distancing from another person not in the same household.
