SUBJECT:

Title

Presentation, discussion and possible direction to staff regarding whether to require the use of face coverings by the public while at city facilities, and whether to place a limit on the building occupancy of certain city facilities.

 

Body

BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

On March 2, 2021 Governor Abbott issued Executive Order GA-34 which ends Texas’ statewide mask mandate and allows businesses to operate at full capacity effective March 10, 2021. The executive order allows businesses and other establishments to require employees and/or customers to follow additional measures, including the wearing of a face covering and limiting their operational capacity.  Cities fall under the category of “other establishments” and thus staff is looking for direction form the Mayor and City Council on whether to require customers wear marks at city facilities and whether to operate city facilities at 100% occupancy.
