Texans Helping Texans: The Governor's Report to Open Texas (April 27, 2020)
The City of Whitewright encourages employees and the public to adhere to virus mitigation guidelines from the CDC to reduce their risk of exposure to COVID-19. These guidelines include hand washing, avoiding public places while sick, and social distancing.
Distancing helps prevent the spread of COVID-19 via human transmission by limiting the opportunities for people to be in close contact. Because COVID-19 is most commonly spread through the air by coughing or sneezing, close personal contact by touch, or touching an object or surface with the virus on it, minimizing contact with other individuals and frequent handwashing are important steps in reducing the risk of disease transmission.
