News release from the Office of the County Judge: 

Lubbock County Commissioners Court met in Regular Session on Monday to extend the Declaration of Local Disaster for Public Health Emergency for an additional 30 days.

Today, Texas Governor Greg Abbott outlined his ‘Open Texas’ plan, including protocols for small business and individuals,” said Lubbock County Judge Curtis Parrish.

“Lubbock County will adhere to the guidelines set by the Governor as we work together to ensure our citizens are safe as we begin getting Lubbock County back to work.”

As we begin to reopen Lubbock County, we must continue to follow these critical health guidelines:

• Stay home if you can
• Wash hands often and for 20 seconds, or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol
• Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, the throw the tissue away
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
• Disinfect surfaces, buttons, handles, doorknobs and other places touched often
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

We will continue to monitor the governor's plan and let our very capable health care professionals drive out public health decisions. Accordingly, we will continue to make sensible decisions for Lubbock County as conditions warrant.
