Texas moves forward with openings



June 2, 2020

Texas continues to open

      Governor Greg Abbott's Strike Force to Open Texas encourages people to continue wearing face coverings when visiting any of these establishments. However, people who do not wear face masks cannot be penalized, civilly or criminally.

Occupancy limits are still in place for some businesses. Listed occupancies don't apply to outdoor areas or outdoor facilities.

Recommended health protocols from the Governor's Strike Force to Open Texas include appropriate cleaning and disinfection, hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette. 

"Have employees and contractors maintain at least 6 feet of separation from other individuals," the protocols say. "If such distancing is not feasible, other measures such as face-covering, hand hygiene, cough etiquette, cleanliness, and sanitation should be rigorously practiced."

Employees should be screened for symptoms related to COVID-19 before coming into the water park.

The state also recommends making hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, soap and water, or other disinfectants, available to employees and customers.

Starting June 1 

In-person summer school classes may begin. 

Teachers, students and staff can return to campus for administrative duty or cleaning out classrooms.

June 3 

Texas Department of Public Safety offices in North Texas will reopen with limited capacity. 

On Friday at 1 p.m., people who currently do not possess a Texas DL, CDL, learner permit or ID card, as well those who are in need of a drive test, can begin scheduling appointments to visit their local office.

When Phase 4 begins, customers can schedule an appointment for all driver's license office transactions anywhere in the state. That is expected to begin midsummer, the task force says.

June 15 

Games and competitions for recreational sports programs, including for youth sports, can begin.

What is still not allowed:

Visiting long-term care facilities

There are no visitations of nursing homes, state-supported living centers, assisted living facilities or long-term care facilities allowed, unless to provide critical assistance as determined by guidance from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, Abbott said in his Executive Order.

Crowds at concerts or other events

There's been no word on when spectators will be allowed again at large-gathering events, like festivals, or traditional concerts. 

Drive-in concerts are allowed, as long as spectators remain in their vehicles and maintain social-distancing, Abbott said.
