Declaration of Local Disaster (City of Crowley)
In response to President Donald Trump’s and Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s issuance of public health emergency declarations for the nation and the state, and Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley’s recent signing of a declaration of local disaster due to a public health emergency, Crowley Mayor Billy P. Davis has made a declaration of local disaster for public health emergency today, Thursday, March 19, 2020, for the City of Crowley to minimize the potential impact of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in our community.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
- Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
In an effort to encourage exercise and to enjoy the beautiful weather, the City of Crowley is reopening all the parks in the city limits for trail and open-area use only.
Pavilions and playgrounds will remain closed.
Be mindful of the social distancing requirements or Item 9 of the emergency declaration that states “All public or private gatherings of any number of people occurring outside a single household are prohibited, except as otherwise provided herein. Nothing in this Executive Order prohibits the gathering of members of a household or living unit."
As we diligently adhere to this emergency declaration, these portions of our parks will be open.
All City Buildings Closed to Public Access
All city buildings will be closed to public access starting at 5:30 p.m. Monday, March 23. The closure is effective until at least April 3, 2020.
The City of Crowley will continue to conduct business via phone or online. By closing public access to our city facilities we are doing our part to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus and allowing our staff to practice social distancing.
