COVID 19 Update


Dear Ore City Residents,

I want to encourage every resident to take the precautions that have been recommended to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.

We are thankful that our State and Federal governments are working intently to stop this virus.

“The Trump administration released new guidelines on Monday to slow the spread of the coronavirus, including closing schools, avoiding groups of more than 10 people, as well as avoiding discretionary travel, bars, restaurants and food courts.

President Trump… stated these guidelines would apply for 15 days.”

Senator Ted Cruz provided the following chart:

City Hall will remain open at this time, however, Municipal Court dockets are cancelled until April 1, 2020.  All due dates are still in effect at this time.
