Krause: County Will Not Issue Stay at Home Work Safe Order
Comal County Judge Sherman Krause said he supports New Braunfels Mayor Barron Casteel’s decision to issue a Stay at Home Work Safe order on Tuesday but will not follow suit for unincorporated Comal County.
“Today we are not planning on implementing that countywide,” he said during a press conference in New Braunfels City Council chambers.
Casteel’s order goes into effect at midnight on Wednesday. It does not affect essential services like grocery stores or healthcare-related services.
He said to date there are no cases of COVID-19 deemed “community spread” but warned that will change.
“We’d like to go back to a state of normalcy in our community just as quickly as possible,” Casteel said said. “With your help this will be possible.”
