The Williamson County and Cities Health District launched a telephone hotline to assist county restaurants with questions related to operating—after Gov. Greg Abbott announced an expanded reopening of services—in a May 6 news release.

“We know that it’s challenging for restaurants and food retailers to keep up with the ever-changing regulations and guidelines,” said Lori Murphy, WCCHD Environmental Health Services Division director, in the release. “We’re trying to assist businesses with a direct line connecting them to our environmental health professionals [who] will help them to safely re-open and operate.”


The hotline can be reached at 512-248-7600 and will be staffed Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Restaurants calling outside those hours have the option of leaving a voicemail message or forwarding their question via email to [email protected], the release said.
