Earlier this week, Williamson County banned public and private gatherings of 50 or more people.

“Williamson County is dedicated to keeping all of our people safe and healthy. Extraordinary measures had to be taken in order to limit the possible spread of the Coronavirus in Williamson County, potentially overwhelming our healthcare system,” said County Judge Bill Gravell.

“In Williamson County, we are dedicated to being prepared, not scared.”
