The county has cancelled several procedures in the district court and county court-at-law March 16-April 12 with some exceptions, per the post. The Attorney General’s March 19 docket has also been cancelled.
However, courts in Waller County will continue to handle emergency orders, child protection services removal cases, temporary restraining orders and similar motions—which will be scheduled through each respective Court—according to the judge's post.
Additionally, the Waller County Jail will not allow outside visitation until further notice, though the sheriff’s office is looking into alternative visitation methods, the post states.
“Waller County and its officials are working hard to make sure we do our part to protect our citizens and to help ‘flatten the curve’ in relation to slowing the transmission of the Covid-19 virus,” Duhon said in the post.
Duhon’s post also said the Waller County Sheriff’s office and Waller County District Attorney started a program to help pickup and deliver items to homebound Waller County citizens.
As of noon, the county had no confirmed cases of the coronavirus, Duhan said. However, two residents have been hospitalized and are being tested and monitored, he wrote in a March 15 Facebook Post.
