The City of Mount Pleasant today issued an update on the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on the use of city facilities following the declaration of a national state of emergency by President Trump and a state of disaster for Texas by Governor Abbott. Facilities include Mount Pleasant sports fields, parks and pavilions, the civic center, public library and regional airport for events.
“Canceling activities or closing ball fields is not an action we take lightly, but we believe it is in the best interest of the community as we deal with a situation and possible threat that is changing hourly,” said City Manager Ed Thatcher. “We are committed to doing our part to help keep people safe and not exposed to significant health risks. The suspension of non-essential or leisure activities helps to mitigate any potential spread of the virus.”
