“We realize this pandemic is traumatic for many residents,” said Mayor Ford, “and our goal is to educate the public on safety guidelines and to limit the loss of life and overburdening of our healthcare system."
The numbers of confirmed cases, hospitalizations and deaths have all risen. As of Nov. 19, the number of confirmed cases in the United States reached 11,743,780, with 252,861 deaths. In Texas, there have been 1,105,009 cases and 20,565 deaths. Missouri City residents who have contracted the disease now number 2,138 with 53 deaths.
Additionally, Mayor Ford has extended the facial covering order until Feb. 1, 2021. It requires everyone within Missouri City to wear a mask or facial covering when inside a commercial establishment or other building/space open to the public, or when in an outdoor public space wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social distancing.
