On Thursday, November 12, 2020, two county employees in the Hunt County Courthouse tested positive for COV1D-19. As an initial precautionary measure, Hunt County Judge Bobby Stovall issued an emergency order closing the Courthouse to the public – except by appointment – through Tuesday of next week, November 17, 2020.
At the special session meeting, scheduled for next Tuesday, the Commissioners Court will consider additional measures and will consider leaving this policy in place for an additional week.
Judge Stovall said, “In addition to the two Hunt County employees testing positive, there has been an increase in new COVID-19 cases this week around the county. I urge all citizens to continue social distancing and other precaution, measures for the health and safety of themselves and others.”
