I first want to thank all citizens for their continued wise and prudent actions as we all fight this continued threat of the Coronavirus. This virus has been kept away from Post and our County by the quick action of our Governor and our own local officials. We truly never want this virus to ever get a grip on our community or begin to get a foot-hold in Garza County. Over the past few weeks, this virus is becoming a very dangerous and disastrous problem for many communities throughout our nation. Our President recognizes that this problem and Monday extended national guidelines through April 30.
Over the past few weeks in Texas some counties that have become hot spots for the virus moved to a more strenuous form of orders, shutdowns and stay home orders. These orders are established by each county through county officials and are local decisions. These orders are in addition to what was earlier ordered by our Governor. Post has curtailed nearly all community activities and implemented state rules and guidelines to hold off the virus. Schools, churches, businesses and governmental offices all face some inconveniences in our lives because of this disaster. Post has remained virus free by embracing the orders sent from the state a few weeks ago.
Post and Garza county has remained watchful and careful through this time. We must realize that this virus will not just go away. We will have to continue to remain aware of all the troubles this virus can cause a community and our citizens. The cases of this Corona19 has continued to multiply and it seems it is ready to explode in many areas around our community. With this being the case, a proclamation has been ordered Monday, March 30 by the County with guidelines that our county and city needs to note and follow. his slightly more stringent proclamation is being put in place as another layer of protection and prevention for our county, hoping to keep any virus from coming to Post and Garza County. These guidelines are preventive in nature and hopefully will keep that virus out. However, if the virus does come to Post, there may be need for more stringent guidelines to follow. We can all play our part by following these guidelines and keep this virus out of Garza county.
The people of Garza County and Post are the best most caring folks in the world. Let us not forget those that cannot get out. Be sure to remember those who are isolated and in need. Phone calls or just a quick check on people during this time will bring our community together to help in this national disaster. It seems like our lives have all tapped the brakes a bit. Our lives have slowed down tremendously. We are seeing a different side of our family, friends and those we thought we knew. Some things good, some bad and some quite humorous. Please citizens keep smiling, welcoming and most of all praying for our community and the leaders during this most trying time.
