City reminds residents to avoid large gatherings this Easter

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

The City of Lubbock wants to remind everyone to practice social distancing this Sunday.

Families are allowed to celebrate Easter together inside their homes, but large gatherings should still be avoided.

Families can also utilize certain apps and technology to celebrate from a safe distance.

"Social distancing and the stay at home order and disaster declaration for the City of Lubbock are still in place. We need people to follow that and stick with those households and practice that good social distancing if they are outside. Rather than gathering in large groups," Allison Matherly, the department's Public Information Officer, said.

LPD and the Fire Marshal's Office will patrol the city to enforce social distancing laws.

Knowingly violating the stay-at-home or social distancing orders is punishable by a fine up to $1,000 or up to six months in jail.
