Harris County extends Stay Home, Work Safe Order

March 20th, 2020

Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo announced on Tuesday, March 31, the extension of the Stay Home, Work Safe order that will now run through April 30. This announcement comes after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott also ordered social distancing activities to be extended through the end of April.

The City of Seabrook continues to follow the orders of both the county and the state and said its city offices will remain closed to public access through the end of April. Essential city personnel will continue to serve the needs of the community.

“We highly encourage all residents and businesses to adhere to the orders and follow all social distancing recommendations from the CDC, state, and county.”

These additional recommendations are highly suggested:

  • Limit the number of times per week you go to the grocery store.
  • Consider having groceries delivered or using curbside pickup services.
  • Only get what you need at the store. Don’t hoard or stockpile. Leave items for others.
  • The trails and most parks remain open. Please practice social distancing when outdoors.
  • Do not host or attend block parties or other social gatherings.
  • Now is not the time for family get-togethers or playdates. Limit the number of people in your home to just your immediate family and/or caregivers.
  • Always wash your hands or use hand sanitizer immediately after pumping gas or going to public places.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • If you believe you have COVID-19 symptoms, please take the online assessment provided by Harris County Public Health.
  • If you have recently traveled to the states of Louisiana, California, Washington, or New York or the cities of Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit and/or Miami you should self-quarantine for 14 days per Governor Abbott’s recent travel restrictions order.

“Please do your part to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and continue to#StayHomeSeabrook,” a Seabrook spokesman said.
