Latest Updates & Information

Waco & McLennan County encourage their residents to leave home only for essential activities.

As we continue to follow the Governor's plan to reopen Texas, it is vital to practice social/physical distancing and limit activities outside your household. The local emergency order still requires citizens to only leave their house for 'essential activities'. Let's continue the progress we've made... together.

On those occasions when you are out of your home for necessary tasks, stay at least six feet away from others and wear a mask if possible.

The Waco-McLennan County Public Health District is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Texas Department of State Health Services (TX DSHS), as well as other health partners in monitoring the developing outbreak. The City and the Waco-McLennan County Public Health District communicates daily with area hospitals and healthcare providers to share information.


Mask Donation

The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is handling the requests for donations in the community relating to COVID-19.

If you have items to donate (hand sanitizers, medical masks, sanitizing wipes, etc.) please contact their office for items to be dispersed to those that need it most.
