With the announcement of the Southeast Texas Regional Emergency Operation's expanded "Stay Home, Work Safe" order, the counties issued a summary of what that means for the region.
"Our communities play a vital part in helping us stem the spread of COVID-19," reads a news release. According to the provided information, essential government functions, essential businesses, restaurants, bars, micro-breweries, micro-distilleries and wineries serving carry out or delivery food, public parks (but not playground equipment), open outdoor rec areas, laundromats and religious services (by video/teleconference) will be permitted and allowed to stay open.
Non-essential services - gyms, salons, spas, tattoo parlors, live performance theaters, flea markets, malls, to name a few - are to close their doors starting at midnight, if they haven't already done so.
Residents should only leave their homes to perform essential activities: Tasks essential to health and safety, obtaining supplies or delivering supplies to others, engaging in socially distant outdoor activities, performing work providing essential services and caring for a family member or pet in another household.
