The City of Port Aransas continues to actively monitor and respond to the the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. We are in close contact with Nueces County, state and local health officials, and our community partners.
Although we do not have confirmed positive cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) within Port Aransas or Nueces County at this time, based on the press conferences that were delivered by Governor Abbott and President Trump, the City of Port Aransas is being proactive in trying to limit the community spread of the virus.
To continue this effort, Mayor Bujan signed a seven day disaster declaration for Port Aransas. This declaration allows the City to take measures that further reduce the risk of the COVID-19 virus spreading into our area. These measures may include cancellation or postponement of local community events either sponsored by the City or scheduled to take place at City parks and facilities. Additional measures may be taken to protect individuals and groups who are more vulnerable to the virus.
The goal is to help slow the spread of infection. Doing so allows our health systems to sustain and meet the needs of our region, without overwhelming them.
City operations will continue as normal although we encourage everyone to conduct as much City business online as is possible.
