What Can You Do?

We realize there’s confusion in our community right now regarding the orders issued by various governmental entities about the COVID-19 pandemic. Right now the City of Plano is under a State order, a Denton County order, a Collin County order and the City’s own Emergency Declaration.

While there are few differences among these orders, the message is the same: We must exercise individual and collective responsibility and simply STAY HOME.

In seven days, three of these orders expire. During that time, and absent of any further action from the State, Plano’s Mayor Harry LaRosiliere agrees with fellow DFW mayors that a regional collaborative approach is in the best interest of all of our residents and neighbors.

Our message for you, Plano, is: STAY HOME. Ask yourself this simple question: “Who are the loved ones you are willing to stay home for?”

When at all possible, your best choice is to STAY HOME. When you can’t stay home, Be SMART. Work Smart, Shop Smart and always follow the Smart Health Tips.
