While the number of COVID-19 positive cases in Titus County is low compared to other regions, they ARE increasing. To slow the spread, Titus County Judge Brian Lee will amend the current Local State of Disaster Declaration for the county on Monday, April 20, 2020. The declaration covers all cities in Titus County.
The declaration includes additional measures, including new masking requirements. The goal is to achieve a decline in cases, which is required to get Titus County open and back to work.
The declaration takes effect 11:59 p.m., Monday, April 20, 2020. It will be in effect until at least April 30, but may be extended.
