FLOYDADA – Floyd County Commissioners called an emergency meeting on Wednesday, April 27 at the Floyd County Courthouse.
Open discussion was held with the elected officials, community leaders, business owners and citizens concerning re-opening Floyd County by allowing 50% occupancy versus 25% occupancy at the businesses designated by Governor Abbott’s Phase-in plan.
Due to the low number of cases, Floyd County businesses are eligible to open to a 50% occupancy level. Commissioner Tanner Smith made the motion to accept the motion, Commissioner Nathan Johnson seconded the motion and was approved unanimously.
Governor Abbot’s plan lists businesses that may open to 50% are restaurants, malls, movie theaters, museums and libraries and churches.
Public swimming pools, bars, gyms, spas and salons will continue to remain closed through Phase I. Nursing homes, state supported living centers, assisted living facilities and long-term care facilities will continue to remain closed to visitors.
Commissioners present for the meeting were Martinez, Smith, Bigham and Johnson.
The next Commissioners’ Court meeting will be held at 8 a.m. Monday, May 11 at the Floyd County Courthouse.
