Per Governor Abbott’s Executive Order GA-34, effective Wednesday, March 10, 2021, all businesses of any type may open to 100% capacity. Additionally, this order ends the statewide mask mandate in Texas. Businesses may still limit capacity or implement additional safety protocols at their own discretion.
If COVID-19 hospitalizations in any of the 22 hospital regions in Texas get above 15% of the hospital bed capacity in that region for seven straight days, a County Judge in that region may use COVID-19 mitigation strategies. However, County Judges may not impose jail time for not following COVID-19 orders nor may any penalties be imposed for failing to wear a face mask. If restrictions are imposed at a County level, those restrictions may not include reducing capacity to less than 50% for any type of entity.
This executive order rescinds most of the Governor's earlier executive orders related to COVID-19. To read Executive Order GA-34, please visit https://www.clearlakeshores-tx.gov/DocumentCenter/View/1151/EO-GA-34-opening-Texas-response-to-COVID-disaster-IMAGE-03-02-2021
