In a press conference earlier today, Mayor Stephen Santellana issued the “Live Safe, Work Safe” order.

Effective Saturday, April 25, 2020 at 8:00 am businesses that were deemed non-essential (restaurants, bars, retail stores, etc.) will be allowed to reopen. Businesses that choose to reopen will be required to present city and county leaders with a sanitization plan.

There are restrictions in place with the order:

  • People ages six and older are required to wear a mask when in public.
  • Businesses are recommended to screen all employees
  • Businesses must use social distancing practices as well as practice health sanitization
  • Gatherings must be limited to no more than ten people

While churches are urged to conduct services online, city leaders are following the executive order of Governor Abbott.
