Mayor’s statement on reduced business capacity in Caldwell County

At 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, January 13, the provisions of Governor Greg Abbott’s Executive Order GA-32 that suspend elective surgeries, close bars and reduce business capacity to 50 percent go into effect in Lockhart and Caldwell County.


 This is occurring because under GA-32, these specific provisions take effect when a Trauma Service Area has seven consecutive days in which the number of COVID-19 hospitalized patients as a percentage of total capacity exceeds 15 percent. This has been the case in Trauma Service Area O, which includes Caldwell County.


 These provisions will be lifted once our Trauma Service Area’s COVID-19 hospitalized patient ratio remains below 15 percent for seven days.


 While we wait for the population to receive the vaccine, it is imperative that we continue to take care of ourselves and each other by socially distancing, wearing face coverings in public, and practicing good hygiene. Stay safe and please, be patient. Over time, the light at the end of the tunnel will get brighter as we move closer to the pandemic’s finish line.
