Knox County Judge Stan Wojcik announced the first case of COVID-19 in the county last Saturday when a lady from Goree, who works at the Rolling Plains Detention facility in Haskell, tested positive for the virus and was ordered to self-isolate for 14 days along with others she had contact with. (See related story.)
The Commissioners Court met Monday morning, but decided it can’t regulate any more and didn’t add any additional regulations. “We did everything we could,” Wojcik said. “It’s up to the public to listen. We now are entering the enforcement stage. If you can’t follow the regulations, you will be fined.”
Earlier last Thursday, Baylor County Judge Rusty Stafford issued an order to close overnight camping at the Miller Creek Reservoir. The fishing dock is also closed. Public fishing is encouraged by boat or along the banks as long as social distancing is observed.
