Lavaca County Commissioners’ Court to stream meeting live on Facebook

Lavaca County Commissioners' Court making changes due to COVID-19 pandemic

Lavaca County Commissioners’ Court will limit seating in the courtroom due to the coronavirus pandemic. Lavaca county will live stream the meeting on its Facebook page, so residents are encouraged to watch the meeting from home.

“Regarding public meetings, there haven’t been many guidelines other than ‘social distancing’ to prevent coughs or sneezes from traveling to one another,” said Egon Barthels, Lavaca County Emergency Management Coordinator. “None of us want to be ‘fear mongers’, but then none of us want to be considered negligent.”

The CDC describes social distancing as remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding large gatherings, and keeping a distance of about 6 feet from others when possible.

The next Lavaca County Commissioners’ Court meeting is set for Monday, March 23, 2020 at 10 a.m.
