Today, March 19, 2020, the McLennan County Commissioners Court extended its Order and Declaration of Disaster to include the following:

Public or private Community Gatherings of more than 10 people are PROHIBITED anywhere in McLennan County.

This order shall become effective at 11:59 pm on March 19, 2020; until then, the restrictions as set forth in the County Judge’s Order of March 18, 2020, shall apply.

What does this mean for Robinson? This order supersedes the original order established by the city and means the above will come into effect at 11:59 pm on March 19, 2020.

As this information is ever-changing, residents can find the most current information at https://www.robinsontexas.org/CivicAlerts.aspx?CID=1 or on our city social media sites.

The City is taking measures and working closely with our partners to ensure the following will continue:

Maintain and provide sewer and water services to our residents.
Ensure that public safety officers have the resources they need to respond to emergencies.
Facilitate the preservation of our infrastructure and facilities.
Work closely with Waste Management to ensure solid waste services continue for our residents.

In the meantime, we ask for your help. Please remain calm and focused on continuing the critical but basic public health recommendations you are receiving. As a part of remaining calm, please understand the difference between being stocked v. stockpiled. There is no need to hoard basic supplies. Also, where allowed, please help your local restaurants by ordering take-out or pick-up where possible. Otherwise, stay home unless you have essential activities away from home. When we work together in all of these ways, our efforts will ensure that we stop the spread of COVID-19
