HAYS COUNTY (Talk1370.com) -- Hays County is the latest jurisdiction to enact a "Stay Home, Work Safe" order in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition to ordering residents to stay at home except for essential activities and businesses, the order also calls for a curfew between the hours of 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. daily.
