Town of Bartonville Issues Disaster Declaration

Due to the first presumptive positive case of coronavirus/COVID-19 in Denton County, Bartonville Mayor Bill Scherer signed a disaster declaration for the Town of Bartonville on Wednesday, March 18.

The disaster declaration will last for up to seven days.  The Town Council will consider extending the disaster declaration on Tuesday, March 24 at 7PM.

All restaurants, bars, and coffee shops within Bartonville are limited to 50% occupancy as set forth on the business’ certificate of occupancy effective immediately.  

This is a proactive step by Town officials to prevent the community spread of COVID-19 seen in other parts of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.

Town officials recommend social distancing and the practice of good hygiene such as avoiding close contact with people who are sick, staying home when you’re sick, covering your mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing to reduce the spread of germs, washing your hands thoroughly and often and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
