During the last 48 hours, the community leaders in Waco, Harlingen, Hutto, and Breckenridge issued “shelter-in-place” orders. These new orders mean that about three-quarters of our TSTC students and employees are now covered by such directives. Now, it’s clear that our decision last week to work remotely at TSTC has proven to be prudent and well-timed.
With cases still growing in Texas, it’s now increasingly more likely that other communities in which we have campuses will take similar steps in the near future. Complying with such orders is an indispensable part of fighting COVID-19 in Texas.
Regardless of whether your community has reached this phase or not, now is the time for each of us to do our part to protect our families, our coworkers, and our neighbors by following the health advice of the experts and the civil directives of our community leaders.
To find out more about why staying at home is important right now, check out the video on the link, below. We thank our new Regent, Ron Widup, for sending us this insightful piece (by the way, Ron is a TSTC grad).
Y’all take care of yourself, your family, and each other!
