Plano Mayor Chooses to Self Quarantine Amid Confusing Restrictions in Multi-County City

PLANO (WBAP/KLIF)- Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere says there is confusion in the community right now, regarding the orders issued by governmental entities regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. The City of Plano is under a State order, a Denton County order, a Collin County order and the City’s own Emergency Declaration.  While there are few differences among these orders, the message is the same: we must exercise individual and collective responsibility and simply stay home.  In seven days, three of these orders expire.  During that time and absent of any further action from the State, Mayor LaRosiliere agrees with his fellow Mayor in Dallas, Eric Johnson, whose plea for a regional collaborative approach is in the best interest of all of our residents and neighbors. Mayor LaRosiliere emphasizes the ultimate message is stay home.  He urges everyone to ask themselves a simple question: “Who are the loved ones you’re willing to stay home for?”

The Mayor is in self-quarantine with his family. “I chose a 14-day self-quarantine to protect my family and loved ones because it’s the right thing to do,” said LaRosiliere. “I wouldn’t ask my citizens to do this if I wasn’t willing to do it myself. We will overcome this crisis together.”
