City of Pflugerville closes Lake Pflugerville Park

Post Date:03/30/2020 11:16 AM

Effective at noon on Monday, March 30, the City of Pflugerville is closing Lake Pflugerville Park to the public until further notice. Closures include access to the lake, fishing piers, pavilion, restrooms and trails around the lake and park. This is to help enforce social distancing required by the Travis and Williamson counties’ Stay Home Orders issued last week. In these Orders, residents were told to only leave their homes when necessary, and while the Order allows for outdoor activity, Lake Pflugerville has become overcrowded, putting the public in danger. If the City continues to see overcrowding or lack of social distancing in other parks, they will also be closed.

As of this morning, the Travis County COVID-19 dashboard reports nine cases of the virus in the 78660 zip code. With the presence of COVID-19 in the Pflugerville community, everyone must take additional precautions to stay safe and healthy.

“We are closing Lake Pflugerville to protect our community from COVID-19,” Mayor Gonzales said. “Now, more than ever, it takes the entire community working together and committing to stop the spread of this disease. When we face challenges, we overcome together. It is time to change our habits, because together we can fight this disease.”

Facility closures, public health resources and other information about the City’s response to COVID-19 are available at pflugervilletx.gov/virus.

Tips to reduce spread of COVID-19

Flyer to prevent disease
  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Cover your cough by coughing or sneezing into your elbow
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home if you develop flu-like symptoms or sickness
  • Clean and disinfect frequently-touched surfaces.
  • Practice social distancing
Why physical distancing is important

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), social distancing is the practice of keeping a distance from other people to help reduce the spread of the virus in community settings.  The new term "physical distancing" reminds us that we need to make sure we maintain a distance from others to reduce and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Because COVID-19 is most commonly spread through the air by coughing or sneezing, close personal contact by touch, or touching an object or surface with the virus on it, minimizing contact with other individuals is an important step in reducing the risk of disease transmission.
