Judge McDaniel “no plans to stop day-to-day operations at this time”

Hardin County Judge Wayne McDaniel told the Brooks Report; “there are no plans at this time to stop any day to day operations at the Hardin County courthouse, if that changes we will notify the public immediately.”

This comes in response to our neighboring Jefferson County has suspended all jury trials until the end of April.

However Judge McDanile did want to encourage all small businesses owners who have been negatively impacted by COVID-19 to report their losses so they could be submitted to the state.

“Although no cases of COVID-19 exist in Hardin County at present, many of you have already sustained an economic loss as a result of this global pandemic. For example, many of our residents are losing money today as a result of the decision yesterday to cancel the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

Attached is a form that you can complete and submit to us that we will forward to the Texas Division of Emergency Management. This will not guarantee any funds to you or your business, but will aid the State of Texas in obtaining an economic injury SBA declaration in support of COVID-19, which may qualify you as an applicant in the future for Federal and/or State assistance.

If you wish to complete this form, please do so and submit it to: COVID-19@Co.Hardin.TX.US

Any questions concerning COVID-19 should be directed to the Hardin County Health Department at (409) 246-5188 or by visiting their website. You may also follow the Hardin County Emergency Management Facebook page for COVID-19 up-to-date information.”
