Dear Citizens of Jackson County,

As local leaders of Jackson County we want our residents to know that we have been working closely with state and local officials over the last week to ensure that the county is prepared for the COVID-19 virus.  At this time there are confirmed cases in both Matagorda and Lavaca Counties and we believe that it is not a matter of if, but when our county has a confirmed case.  There is a strong possibility that the virus is already amongst us but the carrier is not showing signs.  However, everyone should know that rather than panicking, we should use some vigilance and common sense and work as a community to slow the spread of the virus.  That means taking some precautionary

measures now before the virus has entered our county.  

We ask that everyone continue to follow these recommendations that have been provided by Center for Disease Control and President Trump. If you have a non-essential event planned in the next 15 days where more than 10 will be in attendance, it is in our community’s best interest for those events to be cancelled or postponed.  Events of any size should only be continued if they can be carried out with adherence to guidelines for protecting vulnerable populations, hand hygiene and keeping individuals six feet apart.  By keeping your distance from one another, you could be preventing spreading the virus to someone who may have a harder time recovering from it. 

If you are not feeling well we are asking for you to stay home and not get out in the community.  This is extremely important to keep the spread of the virus.  We also recommend the following practices based on the CDC guidelines: wash hands, use hand sanitizer, cover coughs, avoid touching, disinfect surfaces, and avoid close contact. 

We have also been in communication with our local grocery stores and they will continue to get us the necessities that we need.  There is no need to purchase several weeks’ worth of supplies.  This will help everyone get the goods and supplies that they need.

We will continue to work with healthcare officials, the schools, and other leaders in the community as this situation evolves.  We will update new information as it becomes available.  Again, we are urging everyone to do their part to protect our community.  Too many cases of COVID-19 in our community could put a strain on our local and regional healthcare facilities and goal at this time is to slow the spread.  That means following the above guidelines which we have gathered from the health experts from local, state and federal agencies.

Sincerely,

Judge Jill S. Sklar                                                                                                  Mayor Clinton Tegeler
