According to a statement from Hays County Judge Ruben Becerra released last week included language that masks were mandatory and included a $1000 fine for businesses, their employees, and customers for each violation.

On Friday, June 19, Becerra walked back the threat of the fine against businesses.

The latest Executive Order GA-26 issued by Governor Greg Abbott, stated there would be no civil or criminal penalty will be imposed on individuals for failure to wear a face covering.

However, for individuals and businesses who cannot keep the 6-foot suggested social distancing, it is strongly suggested to wear masks.

On Wednesday, June 3, Governor Greg Abbott announced phase three of Texas’ plan to safely open the economy while containing the spread of COVID-19.

Under Phase III, effective immediately, all businesses in Texas will be able to operate at up to 75% capacity, with very limited exceptions.

Businesses that previously have been able to operate at 100% capacity may continue to do so, and most outdoor areas are not subject to capacity limits.

All businesses and customers should continue to follow minimum standard health protocols laid out by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS).

Effective June 19
Amusement parks and carnivals in counties with more than 1,000 confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 may open at 75% capacity.

Additional Openings
Special provisions have been made for outdoor gatherings, such as the Fourth of July celebrations, but it is imperative that local officials and public health officials collaborate on safety standards.

These provisions are included in the Governor’s Executive Order and are also available on the Open Texas webpage.

Further Protocols
All businesses should continue to follow the minimum standard of health protocols from DSHS.

Reminders for those going out:

  • Individuals are encouraged to wear appropriate face coverings.
  • People should not be in groups greater than ten when possible.
  • People over the age of 65 are encouraged to stay at home as much as possible.
  • People are still asked to avoid nursing homes, state-supported living centers, assisted living facilities, or long-term care facilities.

NOTE: Case and fatality information is updated daily at 1 pm and is compiled from information reported publicly by local health departments and through the DSHS public health regions. Counts are current as of that morning.
Because some jurisdictions report cases later in the day, local numbers may be more up to date. County case numbers may occasionally go down if the case investigation determines the person is a resident of another county or state.
Testing numbers show the number of test results for Texas residents reported to DSHS by public health and private labs. They do not include pending tests. Additional testing may be occurring by labs not yet reporting all results to DSHS. Unable to deduplicate total test numbers for private labs.
Demographic data comes from completed case investigations. The majority of cases in Texas are still under investigation.
Hospitalization and hospital capacity numbers are reported daily by hospitals through eight Hospital Preparedness Program providers that coordinate health care system preparedness and response activities in Texas.
