We understand that practicing social distancing can be disruptive, frustrating, and feel scary. However, we ask that the community continue to practice social distancing, wear a face covering, and wash your hands frequently until the threat has passed.

Governor Greg Abbott announced July 2, 2020

Every person in Texas shall wear a face covering over the nose and mouth when inside a commercial entity or other building or space open to the public, or when in an outdoor public space, wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social distancing from another person not in the same household. (Executive Order GA29) Read the full Executive Order here.

All visitors to City facilities will be required to wear a face covering.
