The county's 13th emergency order comes after the Texas Department of State Health Services reported on Feb. 20 that the county is no longer an area of high COVID-19 hospitalizations.
Trevino previously extended the county’s 12th emergency order on February 5, which ordered that all restaurants would remain at 50% capacity and all bars and similar establishments would remain closed until officials reported seven consecutive days in which the number of COVID-19 hospitalized patients is 15 percent or less.
The 13th emergency order went into effect at 12:01 p.m. on Monday and will continue until March 31, unless its modified by Trevino.
