Homeland Security Officer Richard Hill has clarified the Herald-Banner’s report earlier today and residents in Hunt County will NOT be required to wear masks/cloth face coverings when in public beginning on Monday.
Hill confirmed that someone called into the Herald-Banner claiming to be the County Judge and requested Herald-Banner post that a mask requirement would begin in Hunt County on Monday.
It was reported earlier that the mask requirement would be similar to the Dallas County order issued earlier today.
