City of Texas City Covid-19 Update, Mar. 9

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott recently issued a new executive order that goes into effect on Wednesday, March 10. This executive order states that all businesses of any type may open to 100 percent capacity, and there will no longer be a statewide mask mandate in Texas. The City of Texas City has worked closely with Galveston County Health District and UTMB, to review the governor’s recent order and identify safety measures for all city facilities. Current safety measures will remain in place for all city facilities.

All employees, visitors and contractors entering a city facility must:

  • wear face coverings;
  • maintain safe distance; and
  • utilize temperature screening kiosks at facility entrances. (employees only)
  • hygiene and PPE supplies will continue to be provided

 

The governor’s order allows businesses to require masks and limit capacity. Citizens must comply with safety measures implemented by businesses or choose to shop elsewhere. Failure to comply could result in criminal trespass charges.

  • Continue to take the simple precautions to stay safe, especially wearing properly fitted face masks.
  • Wash hands regularly, avoid touching faces, maintain safe distance from others and routinely disinfect surfaces.
  • For those who are able, take advantage of COVID 19 vaccines when eligible to receive one. These vaccines are safe, and they are important.
