Latest COVID-19 information
During its regular meeting on April 21 (video), The Colony City Council amended its local disaster declaration such that moving forward the City will adopt executive orders and timelines in response to COVID-19 as determined by the Denton County Commissioners Court. Denton County this week stated its intent to conform to the statewide orders set forth by the Governor's Office, which include the mandate for all Texans to continue following #StayHome guidelines through at least April 30. However, restrictions regarding retail operations are anticipated to loosen on April 24 under strict conditions. Related updates include:
"We can start looking forward to some revival of the businesses and shops in our community (on April 24) as long as they continue to follow social-distancing and the guidelines set forth by Governor Abbott," The Colony Mayor Joe McCourry said. "We're able to reach this point pretty quick because our residents have followed the stay-at-home directions. We have to thank every one of the residents in our community that have gotten us to this point so that we can start reopening our economy and get our community businesses on the road to recovery."
Mayor McCourry also wished to thank those who have provided masks not only for first-responders or healthcare workers but for their friends and neighbors, too. "Our community has come together and there's some very special folks we need to thank who have gone out of their way," he said.
