Declaration of Disaster – COVID-19 – 3/26/2020
A Declaration of Disaster and accompanying Emergency Orders have been signed by mayor Larry Spears Jr. which will become effective at 11:59 pm, March 26, 2020.
During this entire episode, the City of Orange has supported the actions of Orange County Judge John Gothia and the other area County Judges. We feel fortunate that currently there is only one reported positive case in Orange County and a relatively limited number in Southeast Texas. The City of Orange believes this declaration and emergency orders will assist in the area-wide effort to limit the public’s exposure to COVID-19 and curtail the spread of the virus.
