“We are all in this together and the more we can all work together on limiting interactions, the better chances as a community we have to prevent the spread of this virus and also in protecting our older population and those at higher risk of serious illness due to the disease,” said Lakeway Mayor Sandy Cox in a release. “Thank you all for helping keep each other safe. We will get through this together as a community.
