Cameron County to lift some restrictions; boat ramps to reopen

Cameron County Judge Eddie Trevino Jr. holds a press conference update on the measures the county is taking against COVID-19 pandemic Wednesday.

The Cameron County Parks and boat ramps will be reopened or partially reopened. Facial covering must continue to be utilized.

In addition, the county will lift the limit of the number of people traveling in a vehicle, but everyone riding in the vehicle must have face coverings, whether or not they are family members.

Trevino said the public must continue to practice social distancing, wear facial coverings, and should continue to follow the rules that prohibit children the ages of 14 and younger from entering the grocery store.

The lifting of the restrictions will take effect at 12:01 a.m. Saturday.
