'Stay Home Stay Safe' order in effect
03/30/2020

Caldwell County Judge Hoppy Haden on Monday, March 30 announced a “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order that will go into effect at 10 p.m. Tuesday, March 31.

 

The order was announced three days after the county reported its first confirmed case of COVID-19: a 30-year-old Caldwell County resident who is being quarantined at a hospital outside the county.

 

The order requires all people living within Caldwell County, including Lockhart and its municipalities, to remain and stay at their place of residence unless performing essential activities or performing or accessing essential government functions, healthcare operations, essential businesses and essential critical infrastructure, which are all defined in Section 5 of the order.

 

If venturing outside one’s residence for any of the above listed reasons, an individual must at all times as reasonably possible maintain social distancing of at least six feet from any other person.

 

The order disallows social gatherings of any size.

 

The order does not include a curfew.

 

The judge’s order will remain in effect until April 31.

 

Lockhart Mayor Lew White issued a statement showing his support for the order. Click here to read it.
