Devine public health emergency extended another month

The Devine City Council unanimously approved extending its public health emergency declaration for an additional 30 days, with the intent of opening City Hall, the police department, the Driscoll Public Library, and Animal Control to the public on October 1.
The decisions were made during a Special meeting last Tuesday, September 22, when Emergency Management Coordinator Rob Flores said that Dr. Richard Neel was satisfied with the safety measures put in place at City Hall.
Those measures include tempered glass partitions to separate City employees from customers, as well as hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes.
The library will reopen using guidance provided by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, which includes limiting the number of patrons inside the library to eight at a time, limiting the number of available public access computers, and limiting computer usage to 30 minutes unless previous arrangements have been made.
Preschool Storytime remains suspended until further notice, as does the program room.
For more details about the library’s policies and restrictions, see separate story “Driscoll Public Library guidelines for use as of October 1, 2020.”
