With the widespread coverage of the Coronavirus, the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce reached out to local elected officials to address the concerns within the Georgetown community.
The risk for all Texas residents remains low, according to Texas Department of Health Services. As of today there are no confirmed cases in Williamson County.
As this is an evolving situation, we will continue to monitor the facts and provide updates when necessary.
Please review the list below, compiled from the responses of local officials:
1. COVID-19 is spread mainly from person-to-person who are in close contact (within about 6 feet), via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
