Hays County Judge Ruben Becerra announced on Twitter he will be issuing a shelter at home order as well as a curfew.

Becerra in his post said the number of coronavirus cases “continues to grow, with a total of 10 cases now reported this morning. The order will be similar to those in Central TX. This is a necessary step to stop the spread.”
