Coronavirus Update, NRH Declaration of Local Disaster Amended
There are now three cases of COVID-19 confirmed by Tarrant County Public Health in North Richland Hills and 110 in Tarrant County. Together we must continue to do our part to protect our community and slow the spread.

Stay at home except to work at an essential business, get food and other essential supplies, visit the doctor, care for a family member or pet in another household, and engage in outdoor activity (for example, walking, biking, hiking, or running) with social distancing. Limit contact with others outside your household as much as possible. Wash hands often and encourage others to do the same. Cover coughs and sneezes. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. Disinfect surfaces that are touched often. Stay home and contact your doctor if you are sick.

On Thursday, March 26, North Richland Hills City Council approved a third amendment to the city’s declaration of local disaster to incorporate language from Tarrant County’s recent “Stay at Home” executive order and clarify restrictions for local North Richland Hills businesses. You can watch the Council discussion here and read the amended document here

Stay home, be safe and we’ll all get through this together. 
Republic Waste Temporarily Suspends Bulk & Brush Collections
Republic Services would like to thank our residents for their patience and understanding while crews work diligently to collect the additional curbside trash generated with so many families practicing social distancing at home. Due to a reduced workforce and increasing curbside set-outs, until further notice Republic Services will no longer be collecting bulk, brush and limb debris curbside. Instead crews will continue to focus on the increased residential volume to keep our curbs clean. 

During this time, we would like to remind our residents to please bag and tie trash before you place it in your can to keep crews safe while handling household wastes. Recycle can still go loosely in the recycle cart, since it is collected by a mechanical truck and the trash crews do not come in contact with what is inside the recycle cart.

The City of North Richland Hills is in constant communication with Republic Services and we will continue to keep our residents updated on any impacts to curbside collection services throughout the pandemic. Missed collections can be reported to Republic Waste at 817-317-2450 or online at www.nrhtx.com/requesttracker.aspx.
May 2 Bond Election Postponed
Due to the coronavirus pandemic and state and local emergency declarations put in place to help stop the spread of the disease, the North Richland Hills City Council voted to postpone the May 2, 2020 bond election for street improvements. The election will move to the next uniform election date, occurring on November 3, 2020, unless an earlier date occurring after May 2 is authorized by the governor.
Have You Completed the 2020 Census?
North Richland Hills is counting on you to take the 2020 Census. Filling out the census ensures our city gets its fair share of federal funding for healthcare, public schools, job training, emergency services and more during the next 10 years. It also helps Texas receive accurate representation in the U.S. House of Representatives. Don’t let our city or state be underrepresented. If you have not already completed the census, please do so today!

If you did not receive or have misplaced your census form, you can still take the census at my2020census.gov or by calling 1-844-330-2020. The census takes just 10 minutes and the information you provide will remain confidential. The Census Bureau is required by federal law to protect your information and can only use your data for statistical purposes. 
Watch Out for Coronavirus Scams
Often in times of uncertainty or fear, criminals will work to take advantage of high emotions. The Federal Trade Commission has put together a website dedicated to letting you know about scams related to COVID-19. Make sure that you are extra cautious about anything that's asking for personal or financial information. Head over to the FTC website to learn more.
