In a united and unprecedented move, a shelter-in-place has been ordered for Brazos County, including the cities of Bryan and College Station.
Officials announced the order during a news briefing Monday afternoon from the Brazos County Health District.
“This order came about because one thing we cannot afford is complacency. Everyone has to take this virus seriously. If we don’t we will be faced with the same dilemma and the same loss of life as in other countries and cities,” said Mayor Karl Mooney.
Mayor Andrew Nelson said a reason for this order is to get ahead of this virus. He also said the end date for this order is in two-weeks but can be extended.
The 8-page shelter-in-place order goes into effect at 9:00 p.m. tomorrow. Mayor Nelson said the need is immediate so if you can start now, start now.
