What Does ‘Stay Home - Work Safe’ Mean?

Mar 26, 2020

Because the situation surrounding COVID-19 is constantly evolving, some information may not be up to date. Stay informed by following information from your local officials and by visiting the CDC website.

Several areas in Texas, including Brazos County, have announced a Shelter in Place order or a ‘Stay Home - Work Safe’ order, which has specific requirements for the COVID-19 pandemic situation. Learn how this affects your day-to-day life and how you can help our whole community stay safe during this uncertain time.

While parks will remain open to allow people the opportunity to get outside, all playgrounds, benches, and hard surfaces should not be used. Restaurants will remain open, but are only allowed to serve take out, delivery, and drive-thru services. If you do have an essential need to go out in public, remember to maintain six feet of distance between yourself and others at all times.

Following these guidelines will go a long way to slow the spread of COVID-19. If you believe you have the symptoms of this virus, contact your primary care physician at CHI St. Joseph Health for details on next steps.
