“I recognize family activities are already limited, and holidays are a special time to gather with our loved ones. However, we simply cannot afford to take the risk. Your health and your family’s health are too important,” Georgetown Mayor Dale Ross said in the release. “Please keep your family and your neighbors in mind as you plan your holiday celebrations. Continue to follow all the physical distancing guidance and other recommendations from public health and government officials.”
Additionally, Williamson County has closed Berry Springs Park & Preserve, located at 1801 CR 152 in Georgetown, along with its closure of all county parks and trails during this time.

There will be signage along the trails and throughout city parks to remind residents access is prohibited, the release said, adding Blue Hole Park, park amenities and city facilities remain closed to the public until further notice, with few exceptions.
