On Tuesday, Mayor Karl Mooney issued a proclamation declaring the state of disaster to enable the city to respond to the pandemic and seek state and federal assistance. Under Texas law, the declaration can’t extend beyond seven days without the city council’s consent. The Extension of Disaster ordinance would continue the existing state of disaster until the council terminates it.

The mayor amended the proclamation Wednesday to include an order closing bars and limiting restaurants to only take-out, drive-through, or delivery services. The amendment also limited gatherings to fewer than 10 people.
