A complete list of the latest City updates and canceled events/programs can be found at CedarParkTexas.gov/coronavirus.

 


 

The City of Cedar Park is a member of the Williamson County and Cities Health District.  As such, we are actively coordinating with health officials and closely monitoring this rapidly evolving situation.   

The Williamson County and Cities Health District is proactively asking residents to visit Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) websites for the most current information on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID‑19).

To help keep City-owned facilities, offices and venues safe, we have increased the frequency of deep cleaning and sanitation of surfaces.  For the safety of our community and employees the City also continues to actively encourage everyone to join us in following these CDC recommendations:

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
    • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
    • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
