Jeff Weinstein started this petition to Henderson County Judge Wade McKinney

The Coronavirus is now is all 50 states and the community spread exists throughout Texas and Henderson County. Public Health Professionals throughout the Country have been urging the Federal Government, States, Counties and Cities to be more aggressive in taking action to curb the spread of the virus.

Henderson County Commissioners recently voted down Stay in Place for Henderson County, Texas. This vote puts all residents in Henderson County at further risk of being infected with the virus. According to health professionals, there is NO GOOD EXCUSE for not having Stay in Place policies in effect.

By failing to vote in favor of a Stay in Place Order for Henderson County, County Judge Wade McKinney and the Henderson County Commissioners have placed all citizens in the County at an exponential risk of being infected with the virus.

The only cure we have for the virus today so that it does not continue for months is to reduce opportunities for people to interact face-to-face and infect each other. Evidence from China, northern Italy and, most recently, New York — the U.S.'s current hot spot — suggests that even after the virus has spread widely, strict social distancing can eventually bring the number of new infections down.

Even though we are blessed at this time to have few reported cases, we must operate under the assumption that there is a substantial amount of transmission in their midst that is going undetected.

Please sign this Petition to let Judge McKinnery and the Henderson County Commissioners know that you support a vote in Favor of Stay Home, Stay Safe!
