Frisco extends emergency declaration to April 30

(April 7, 2020 - updated April 9 @ 12:14 p.m. ) Tonight, the Frisco City Council voted to extend its emergency declaration to April 30 and amend its ordinance to align with Governor Greg Abbott’s ‘Statewide and Essential Services and Activities Protocols .

By doing so, the City of Frisco is adopting the state’s process for determining whether a business or services is considered ‘essential’.  The Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) provides an online process for applicants to be considered ‘essential’.  The state is using the Critical Infrastructure Workforce definitions provided by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security when considering applications for ‘essential’ designations. 

A Frisco business or services that TDEM approves as ‘essential’ must “…provide written evidence of the same to Frisco as soon as reasonably possible after such approval,” according to the amended ordinance.  

Mayor Cheney also issued a message to residents, encouraging them to be disciplined during this pandemic.

“We still need to do our part by following CDC guidelines which include staying home, social distancing, and washing our hands often. We have more information and resources at FriscoTexas.gov/coronavirus. We will get through this together.  Along the way, let’s remember to ‘spread kindness, not the virus’.” Read the entire letter.

The amended ordinance takes effect today and expires April 30, 2020 unless extended by the Frisco City Council.
