City of Orange issues Declaration of Disaster and Emergency Orders

City of Orange Mayor Larry Spears Jr. signed Declaration of Disaster and Emergency Orders on Thursday which go into effect 11:59 pm, March 26, 2020.

“During this entire episode, the City of Orange has supported the actions of Orange County Judge John Gothia and the other area County Judges,” Orange City Manager Mike Kunst said.  “We feel fortunate that currently there is only one reported positive case in Orange County and a relative limited number in Southeast Texas.  The City of Orange believes this declaration and emergency orders will assistant in the area-wide effort to limit the public’s exposure to COVID-19 and curtail the spread of the virus.”
