Orange County Issues "Stay At Home Order" Beginning Thursday

By FM 101.9

Orange County has implemented a stay-at-home order that goes into effect Thursday at 11pm and lasts until April 9th.

Here's what it means:

"The order will take effect at 11 p.m. Thursday and covers all 13 municipalities in the county, and is seen as a way to “flatten the curve” or ensuring the medical facilities aren’t overwhelmed as more cases of the virus emerge. Only people traveling for essential business, including trips to work, the grocery store or pharmacy, will be allowed on the streets. The order will be in effect for two weeks."

It is okay to go outside to walk, ride bikes, run, but doing so solo, not in large groups.
