#StaySafeIrving: Messages from Irving's Mayor

We will get through this together, Irving

COVID-19 has greatly affected our community, and the last few months have taken a toll on the residents and businesses in Irving. The Shelter-in-Place Order issued by Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins in mid-March represented a seismic shift in how we live, work and socialize. I am so proud of our collective community response and appreciate everyone’s efforts to stay home and help stop the spread.

As we look to the future and try to establish a new sense of normalcy, my hope is that Irving continues to come together and support one another. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected businesses across the globe, and every market has been impacted. Irving businesses are suffering from restrictions and closures, and the job losses have been staggering.

Irving’s economic recovery depends on your support. If possible, please shop local. Many of our restaurants continue to provide curbside takeout, delivery and drive-thru services. Purchase essential goods in Irving grocery stores, hardware stores and other businesses that are open. We must continue to support local businesses during this difficult time to prevent more closures and job losses.

Together, we will get through this. The city has compiled numerous resources for those in need on the COVID-19 website, and for more information contact the city’s COVID-19 hotline or email regarding city services.
