Val Verde County Judge Lewis G. Owens Jr. today signed an executive order aimed at mitigating the spread of COVID-19.

The order requires anyone entering a "commercial entity" in the county to wear a face covering and requires "commercial entities" to develop a health and safety policy that includes a requirement for social distancing and face coverings for their employees where social distancing is not possible.
