City Facilities Will Continue to Require Face Coverings; Occupancy Increased

Facecovering-01-01

Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s Executive Order GA-34 rescinding statewide face covering and occupancy requirements will go into effect March 10th, 2021.

The order does allow businesses and other establishments to require employees and customers to follow additional hygiene measures, including the wearing of a face covering. 

With that in mind, following a discussion and vote by the New Braunfels City Council during their March 8th meeting, the City of New Braunfels will operate all City facilities at 100% occupancy but will require the use of face coverings by the public when social distancing is not feasible. This decision will be revisited at the April 12th, 2021, New Braunfels City Council meeting. 

“Our first and foremost concern is the health and safety of our staff and residents,” said City Manager Robert Camareno. “At the direction of City Council, we are excited to safely reopen our facilities to 100% capacity while prioritizing the safety of our staff and community. This will allow us to keep a healthy staff available so that we can continue to provide the services that our residents deserve.”

City staff will also continue to follow the City’s current COVID-19 policy that requires face coverings while at work and social distancing, among other safety measures.
