Both police departments said they received no calls related to social distancing violators—and a drop in the total number of calls—over Memorial Day weekend.
From 12:01 a.m. May 22 to 12:01 a.m. May 26, the Cedar Park Police Department reported 250 calls for service, according to CPPD spokesperson Alicia Inns. The tally reflects a 10.07% drop from the 278 calls received during the same period in 2019.
The Leander Police Department reported 390 calls for service, down from 409 in 2019 for a 4.65% drop, according to city spokesperson Mike Neu.
The reporting of no calls related to social distancing violations comes as a new set of businesses reopened at the start of the weekend. On May 22, bowling alleys, skating rinks, bingo halls, aquariums, natural caverns, and rodeo and equestrian events were allowed to reopen.
On May 18, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced the beginning of Phase 2 of reopenings that listed business sectors that could open through May 31.
Abbott also announced May 18 that restaurants were allowed to increase from 25% to 50% seating.
In addition to the May 22 businesses, Abbott has announced other future reopenings.
On May 29, water parks and zoos may reopen.
On May 31, day and overnight youth camps, youth sports and certain professional sports without fans in attendance may reopen.
On June 1, Abbott said ISDs could hold in-person summer school. Leander ISD plans to continue remote learning for summer school during June.
On June 8, student-athletes and band members in grades 7-12 may begin to hold limited practices, according to the University Interscholastic League. The decision will ultimately be made by each ISD, the UIL said.
