Health and Safety Policy

Posted on July 1, 2020 at 2:11 PM by John Shelton

Last week Governor Greg Abbott announced the new rising positive case numbers of COVID-19. He urged people to stay home and, across the state, plans for reopening Texas were put on hold for many.

Also last week, Navarro County Judge H.M. Davenport issued an executive order requiring businesses to develop and enforce a Health and Safety Policy. This applies only to businesses outside of cities, saying that Mayors and City Councils may formally adopt the order or create their own. I have prepared and signed an order for the City of Corsicana that strongly recommends the same precautions for businesses within Corsicana. To review a copy of the order, please visit the City of Corsicana website at www.cityofcorsicana.com or the Navarro County OEM website at www.navarrocountyoem.org.

Wearing a mask is such a small thing to ask and it appears that it has become a political issue rather than a best practice choice. Wearing a mask signals to others that I care about them, and by putting on a mask I'm reminded to practice the other protocols we now know does help stop the spread of the disease, I'm resolved to do so, for as long as it takes.

I am asking every citizen who reads this, and every citizen who hears about this to join me in doing these simple things. In doing so we will allow the businesses to continue to operate, the restaurants to continue to serve, the houses of worship to continue to welcome congregations and most importantly the economy to rebound.

Each of us can't do it all, but all of us can personally do our all to stop the virus from spreading, and eventually erase the threat where we live, work, worship and play.
