COVID-19 requirements in Georgetown
Effective Monday, May 17, 2021, visitors to City facilities will be encouraged, but not required, to wear a mask and will be required to maintain social distance while interacting with City staff, per City Council direction. Additionally, City of Georgetown staff, contractors, and volunteers are encouraged, but not required, particularly when social distance can’t be kept or when interacting with members of the public who are wearing a mask. The City will continue to require physical distancing for visitors and staff, perform additional cleaning and sanitization, keep plexiglass in place.
All COVID-19-related restrictions on businesses and the statewide mask mandate were lifted March 10, 2021, per Executive Order GA-34 executed by Gov. Greg Abbott. Establishments can lawfully require people entering their property to wear masks, including their employees. If a customer refuses, the business can ask that person to leave. If the customer refuses, the business may escalate the issue to a trespassing infraction, which can include law enforcement.
We encourage everyone to keep doing their part to protect one another and help stop the spread of COVID-19:
