By Dakota McDonald—
On April 6, County Judge Lee Norman signed a revised Declaration of Disaster.
The new disaster declaration is mostly the same. However, section 8 has changed,
encouraging everyone to “stay at home, except taking care of essential needs.”
The declaration also states that the Garza County courthouse will be temporarily
closed through the week of April 6 with each elected official conducting their business
as needed behind closed doors.
If you need to contact any official, there is a sign posted on the front door of the
courthouse with appropriate contact numbers.
Also coming up in Garza County is the delivery of Hope Totes by The Salvation
Army of Lubbock on Thursday, April 9, at 1 p.m. with help from First United Methodist
The initiative was launched last week and so far more than 250 Hope Totes have
been distributed. The initiative is specifically aimed at reaching independent seniors
living alone and others struggling with the reality of extended facility closures, unexpected
life-as-usual changes and relocation.
Instead of delivery directly to home, a congregate drive-through distribution site
will be set up at First United Methodist Church. The distribution process will occur
so that recipients do not need to exit their vehicles or come into full direct contact
with staff. Appropriate distancing and safety measures will be exercised to maximize
the safety and well-being of everyone.
Additionally, the First Baptist Church community wide drive-up Easter service is
set for Sunday, April 12. The event will be held in the Old Mill Trade Days’ parking
lot. More information on this event is to come at a later date!
The First Baptist Church also partnered with Trailblazers to deliver meals this
Wednesday, April 7 at 10:30 a.m.
Lastly, despite recent rumors, as of Apr. 7, 2020 there are zero confirmed cases of
COVID-19 in Garza County. To keep the number of cases in Post at zero, continue
to exercise proper social distancing and hygiene. And remember, only leave your home
for essential needs.
