[ARCHIVED] West U Update - State of Texas Executive Order GA-16


West U Update – Governor’s Executive Order  GA-16

West U – thank you for doing your part in stopping the communal spread of the Coronavirus. 

We are a little more than half way through the Stay Home – Work Safe order that expires on April 30 and while the number of cases is lower, we are not out of the woods yet. 

What you are doing is working to help keep those numbers low, but remember now is not the time become complacent.  We need to continue to do our part by:

  • Staying home when possible,
  • Wearing a mask when social distancing cannot be maintained,
  • Practicing social distancing with people outside of your household, and
  • Practicing good hygiene
