The amended order allows daycare facilities to open with restrictions per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, leaving the decision to close to the owner of the daycare.
The amendment also asks retailers to implement one-way aisles in their establishments to “help with customer flow, overcrowding, and observation of the 6-foot social distancing recommendations by the CDC,” the amended order said.
“I met with as many of our local retailers as possible and greatly appreciate their cooperation in keeping everyone safe. A week ago, we had six positive COVID-19 cases in Hays County,” Haehn said in a release by the city. “That number has since doubled and will likely continue to increase. It is important that we continue to work as a community to prevent further spread of the virus in Buda and Hays County and prevent our hospitals and medical professionals from being overwhelmed with patients.”
Per the original order, all sports fields, bathrooms, playscapes, basketball courts, skateparks, water fountains and other facilities are closed to the public until further notice. Trails and green spaces remain open.
“My amended order is designed to protect the health and welfare of our citizens, while balancing their ability to live and work” Haehn said in the release.
