The City of Southlake's primary concern with the COVID-19 pandemic is the health and safety of our community and members of our team. We are working with our local, state and federal partners, following advice and directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), and the Denton and Tarrant County Health Departments. In addition to managing City operational impacts, we are also managing contingencies that could affect public programs, meetings and facilities.

We can do a few things and we’ve probably heard them all before. They won’t guarantee to protect us from infection, but they can reduce our risk of infection. These are just as useful for avoiding influenza (flu) virus infection during flu season and for preventing COVID-19, once the local community is known to have it circulating.
Wash your hands for 20 seconds & more frequently than you do now. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
