Judge Richard Cortez Issues Stay-At-Home Order For County Residents

The new order will go into effect at midnight requiring Hidalgo County residents to “Shelter-At-Home” unless conducting essential business. Judge Cortez is also encouraging non-essential businesses to transition to curbside or take out service.

Although Judge Cortez does not have the authority to enforce this order, he hopes it will raise awareness of the growing number of cases and COVID-19 related deaths.
