LEWISVILLE, Texas - The city of Lewisville is temporarily closing the Gene Carey Animal Shelter because too many staff members are sick with COVID-19.
The city said the shelter is being closed to the public in an effort to protect those visitors and other staff members.
There will still be a limited number of staff members available to feed and care for the animals.
Animal service officers will also still respond to emergency calls.
The shelter is expected to reopen next Tuesday.
