Williamson County Coronavirus Updates COVID-19

WILLIAMSON COUNTY (Talk1370.com) -- Outdoor gatherings of more than 10 people will soon be allowed in unincorporated areas of Williamson County.

County Judge Bill Gravell signed the order, which goes into effect Thursday afternoon at 5 p.m.

"I trust that the residents of Williamson County understand the seriousness of COVID-19 and know the precautions that are necessary to protect their health," Gravell said in a statement. "If we continue to use mitigation measures, such as wearing face coverings and washing our hands often, we can safely be able to participate in life events. These gatherings will not be as they once were, but we need to celebrate weddings, and unfortunately, we need to be able to bury family members with the support of our family around us."

The order, which only applies to unincorporated areas of the county, still requires face coverings and social distancing when possible.

Orders for individual cities within Williamson County, which may place further limitations on gatherings, still apply.
