Hello CLS neighbors and businesses,
On Monday, April 27, Governor Greg Abbott signed Executive Order GA-18 that allows retail stores, restaurants, movie theaters, malls, museums and libraries to reopen beginning May 1 with a limited occupancy of no more than 25%.
To align with the Governor’s Executive Order, the City of Clear Lake Shores prepared a local phased plan to safely reopen businesses and city facilities in our community.
The City of Clear Lake Shores will continue to hold regular calls with the State of Texas, Galveston County Health District and County Emergency Operations Personnel to ensure the safety and health of our residents and businesses to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
Beginning May 1st:
Per Governor Abbott’s Executive Order, retail stores, restaurants, movie theaters, malls, museums and libraries will be allowed to reopen with a limited occupancy of no more than 25%. Business owners are not required to open on May 1st, please contact them directly to find their hours of operation and availability.
As of today, these are the following restaurants that are scheduled to reopen on May 1st at 25% capacity:
Barbershops, beauty salons, nail solons, bars and gyms must remain closed until at least May 18. Aspens and Okies will remain closed for dine in service but will continue to offer takeout until at least May 18th.
On May 18, more businesses will be able to open at 50% capacity if data shows that the coronavirus spread is contained during the first two weeks of implementing these new safety measures.
IMPORTANT RULES TO CONTINUE TO FOLLOW:
The stay-at-home order expires on Thursday, April 30, 2020, but the gatherings of 10 people or less is still in place. We must remain vigilant, follow the guidelines recommended by the CDC and maintain social distancing.
The City of Clear Lake Shores is committed to keeping our employees, residents and visitors safe and minimizing risk. We all appreciate those who have stayed home, practiced good social distancing and more vigorous hygiene rituals. The inconveniences of today will allow us to return to the “new” normal more quickly.
The City will continue to follow recommendations and guidance from Galveston County and the State of Texas and continue to assess the situation and will provide updates regularly about future impacts to the community through the City’s website and social media pages.
- Mayor Kurt
