[ARCHIVED] Extended Declaration of Local Disaster for Public Health Emergency

Coronavirus-badge-300

The virus that causes 2019 Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) is easily transmitted through person-to-person contact, especially in group settings, and it is essential that the spread of the virus be slowed to protect the ability of public and private healthcare providers to handle the influx of new patients and safeguard public health and safety. Because of the risk of the rapid spread of the virus, and the need to protect the most vulnerable members of the community, the Mayor of the Town of Sunnyvale issued a Declaration of Local Disaster for Public Health Emergency. This Order prohibits community gatherings, of 50 persons or more anywhere in the Town of Sunnyvale beginning at 11 a.m. on March 13, 2020. On March 19, 2020, the Town Council of the Town of Sunnyvale held an emergency Town Council meeting and voted to extend the declaration until such time that it is retracted by public order or action of the Town Council of the Town of Sunnyvale, Texas, or 30 days. For all other gatherings, the Mayor of the Town of Sunnyvale, in cooperation with the Office of the Dallas County Judge and the Health Authority strongly recommend following the social distancing protocols attached to this Order, including canceling, rescheduling, or not attending events with more than 250 persons. Additionally, Mayor George and the Office of the Dallas County Judge and the Health Authority strongly urges high-risk individuals, as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to cancel, reschedule, or not attend events that will have or will likely have 10 or more people.
