Per Governor Abbott’s Executive Order GA-32, Galveston County restaurants can increase their capacity to 75% and local bars can reopen at 50% capacity.
On December 22, 2020, Galveston County and eight other counties of the East Texas Coast Trauma Service Area R, were restricted from certain activities due to hospitalization numbers tracked by the Department of State Health Services.
The hospitalization numbers for our Trauma Service Area have now been below the state mandated 15% threshold for seven consecutive days and the state’s COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted.
Executive Order GA-32
On October 8, 2020, Governor Greg Abbott issued Executive Order GA-32 to reopen certain venues to 75% capacity and allow resumption of elective surgeries in certain counties. Counties that reside in Trauma Service Areas (TSAs) with high COVID‑19 hospitalizations are excluded from these reopenings.
Per the GA-32, areas with high hospitalizations means any Trauma Service Area that has had seven consecutive days in which the number of COVID‑19 hospitalized patients as a percentage of total hospital capacity exceeds 15 percent, until such time as the Trauma Service Area has seven consecutive days in which the number of COVID‑19 hospitalized patients as a percentage of total hospital capacity is 15 percent or less.
A county within a TSA that has high hospitalizations may still reopen up to 75% if the county meets attestation parameters established under GA-32.
