COUNCIL DISTRICTS IMPACTED: City-wide

 

 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

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 from the Mayor and City Council on whether to require customers wear marks at city facilities and whether to operate city facilities at 100% occupancy.

 

 

 

ISSUE:

On March 8, 2021 City Council voted to revisit the direction of requiring face masks in City facilities.

 

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

There is no fiscal impact.

 

 

 

Recommendation

RECOMMENDATION:
