Face Mask and Gathering Orders
Effective Wednesday, March 10, all COVID-19-related restrictions on businesses and the statewide mask mandate will be lifted per Executive Order GA-34 executed by Gov. Greg Abbott on March 2.
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.
The City is opening all facilities to the public effective March 10. Visitors to City facilities will be 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 will be required to wear a mask when social distance can’t be kept and when interacting with members of the public. Staff also will be required to go through health screenings at all of our facilities, and plexiglass, signage encouraging safety measures, and distancing stickers will remain in place.
We encourage everyone to keep doing your part to protect one another and help stop the spread of COVID-19:
- Wear a mask
- Practice social distancing
- Wash your hands
