Waco City Council extends Shelter in Place order

Local

The Waco City Council unanimously decided to extend the declaration of local disaster Tuesday morning during a special meeting.

The declaration will now continue through April 7th. It was originally issued on Tuesday, March 17th. It includes a shelter in place order that Mayor Kyle Deaver announced on Monday.

The decision came after the McLennan County Health District reported to the council that there are now 24 cases, an increase of four from Monday.

Mayor Deaver did say during today’s meeting that he may recommend extending the shelter in place order beyond April 7th if the need arises.
