Texas Counties Deliver

Welcome to Sabine County, Texas

BUSINESSES PLEASE READ GOVERNOR'S ORDER 6/26/2020 and 7/02/20

To the Citizens of Sabine County:

Today Governor Abbott issued Executive Order GA-29 relating to the use of facing coverings.

The order states "Every person in Texas shall wear a face covering over the nose and mouth when inside a commercial entity or other building or space open to the public, or when in an outdoor public space, wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social distancing from another person not in the same household".

In the order, it allows counties with less than twenty active cases to consider exclusion under provision eleven. As County Judge, I have filed the Exemption Form with Texas Dept. of Emergency Management, TDEM, to waive the mandate as we are under the threshold of twenty.  Currently Jasper/Newton Health District is reporting Sabine County having seven active cases as of 07/02/20.

Even though we have opted out, everyone's peace of mind and well being are of the utmost importance. To slow down the transmission of the virus, wearing of mask in public, social distancing, sanitizing and washing hands, along with avoiding crowds are all recommended.  We have faith that you, as an individual, will make proper decisions for yourself and others pertaining to COVID-19.
