New Mask Wearing Guidelines at City Facilities Effective Tuesday, May 18, 2021
Do Not Put Yourself at Risk; Wear a Mask or Get Vaccinated
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – In alignment with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recent COVID-19 recommendations, City Manager Peter Zanoni has removed the mandatory face-covering requirement for patrons and employees at City facilities for individuals who are fully vaccinated. All others entering City facilities must wear a mask, unless two years of age or younger. Temperature checks will no longer be taken, and social distancing requirements will be relaxed as well.
Fully vaccinated individuals will continue to have the option to wear a mask if desired. Individuals who are not fully vaccinated must wear a mask and social distance while in City facilities.
According to the Corpus Christi – Nueces County Public Health District, you are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after your second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines and two weeks after a single dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.
Beginning Tuesday, May 25, citizens will be able to attend and make public comments in person at City Council meetings without a mask if they are fully vaccinated. Those not vaccinated will need to wear a mask. Public comment will continue to be allowed during City Council meetings by telephone or written testimony as it has been since the inception of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The City reminds visitors and employees if you feel sick, you should stay home.
The Health District continues to encourage those 12-years-old and up to get vaccinated. For more information on walk-thru vaccination clinic locations, call 361-826-7200 and select option 2.
