JUDGE HARBISON: Shelby County filing necessary paperwork to seek a Local Disaster Declaration

As a result of the state wide disaster declaration by Governor Abbott on March, 13th and these recent executive orders issued by the Governor, Shelby County will file the necessary paperwork to the state, of a Local Disaster Declaration. This is only a precautionary move to assist with any actions that need to be taken at a later date.

I ask everyone to remain calm but vigilant; our ultimate goal is to make sure Shelby County does their part to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Again, I want to thank our citizens and all of our partners within the county, together we will weather this storm and be stronger because of it.

Thank you

Allison Harbison – Shelby County Judge/Emergency Management Director
