During this time of uncertainty, I want to assure the citizens of Scotland that our community’s health and well-being is my top priority. We are in continuous communication with our state and county officials as well as the District Coordinator of the Texas Division of Emergency Management on updates and actions to be taken to ensure the safety of our citizens and to help suppress the spread of the virus. On March 27, 2020, I declared a local state of disaster for the City of Scotland in the event federal aid and assistance is needed in the future.

As of April 7, 2020, there are NO confirmed positive cases in Scotland. We ask that you continue to do your civic duty to limit the spread of the highly contagious disease and follow the instructions provided by the health care experts and government. By practicing social distancing, staying home except for essential services, washing hands and often-touched surfaces frequently, you can help prevent the spread of the virus. Our businesses are open but are implementing processes to help combat the virus. Please continue to support our local businesses and economy.

I will update you as information becomes pertinent to your safety and well-being. We appreciate the efforts of the citizens of this community for finding ways to help one another stay well and to reduce the spread of this virus. We will continue to work diligently to keep our city safe.

Respectfully yours,

Mayor Ron Hoff
