The city of Pearland extended its stay-at-home order to 11:59 p.m. April 30 on March 31. The original order was originally set through April 3.

This order continues to ask that residents take the request to go out for essential activities only seriously, according to a press release sent out by the city. According to the release, every person has a responsibility to protect the health of vulnerable populations as well as help ease the burden on the health care system.

In the release, the city suggests paying bills online, ordering food and groceries online for delivery, and conducting business with the city electronically, when possible.

Pearland Mayor Tom Reid signed a Stay-at-Home order today for Pearland residents. The order comes on the heels of Brazoria County's stay-at-home order, which was announced this afternoon.

The stay at home order for Pearland asks that residents only leave their home for the following reasons:

  • To buy groceries or other essential home supplies

  • To go to work at an essential workplace

  • To care for family members and pets

  • To exercise outdoors, alone

  • To visit a healthcare provider

The mandate goes into effect at 6 p.m. March 26 and will stay in effect until 11:59 p.m. April 3—the same time frame as the Brazoria County order.

Reid also signed an order to make it easier for businesses to advertise and complete takeout orders, which will go into effect at 8 a.m. March 26 and stay in effect until 11:59 p.m. April 3.
