Governor Greg Abbott today issued an Executive Order (GA-34) lifting the mask mandate in Texas and increasing capacity of all businesses and facilities in the state to 100 percent. This executive order rescinds most of the Governor's earlier executive orders related to COVID-19. Effective next Wednesday, March 10, 2021 AT 12:01 a.m. all businesses of any type may open to 100% capacity. Additionally, this order ends the statewide mask mandate in Texas. Businesses may still limit capacity or implement additional safety protocols at their own discretion. See enclosed Executive Order GA-34 issued by Governor Abbott on March 2, 2021.
