Splash Pads close

Eduardo Ramirez and Xavier Lozano spin around a pole on a splash pad at the Victoria Youth Sports Complex in June. The pads were closed Friday because of the spread of COVID-19.

The City of Victoria has terminated its local order to wear facial coverings, canceled several events expected to gather more than 10 people and closed some park amenities in response to the orders issued Thursday by Gov. Greg Abbott.

The governor’s orders take effect at 12:01 p.m. Friday and will require people in counties in Texas with confirmed COVID-19 case counts of more than 20 to wear facial coverings in public and restrict outdoor gatherings or groups of more than 10 people, unless exempted, and wherever 6-feet social distancing is not able to be maintained.
