Message from the Mayor: Harris County Mandate for Face Coverings


Dear Seabrook Residents,  
Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo issued an order on April 22, 2020, that will require anyone over the age of ten (10) to wear a face covering in public.  The order went into effect today, April 27, 2020, and will expire at midnight on May 26.  The order has been issued by the County Judge, it is not a local ordinance or city rule.  These recommendations were issued by healthcare professionals giving guidance for the wellbeing of residents in Harris County.  Because no one wants to purposely spread the virus, it is our hope this CDC guidance is followed voluntarily and our community’s compliance is appreciated without any threat of fines or punishment.
 
As far as the City of Seabrook’s enforcement, we will handle calls related to the use of face coverings but higher priority calls will be dispatched appropriately.  When responding to calls on this matter the primary purpose will be to educate citizens.   Officer safety is the priority on all calls.  The handling and disposition of the call will be based on the responding officer’s discretion; no two calls are factually identical so dispositions may differ.    
 
This afternoon, Monday, April 27, Texas Governor Greg Abbott will announce his plans on how we will safely start to reopen Texas. I am eager to see all of our Seabrook businesses reopen and begin providing services and goods to our residents again. I urge everyone as we start to reopen our community to proceed with caution and follow all recommendations that are being issued for you and your family’s safety and wellbeing.
 
Later this week, I will announce plans on how the City of Seabrook will start to reopen city facilities and park amenities. I want to give a special thanks to all city staff who have continued to provide services to our community over the past two months. Moving forward, city operations will change for the safety of our staff and community, so please bear with us as we make this transition.
 
This situation is truly unprecedented for all of us; let’s please show our businesses, our government officials and staff members, and our fellow residents a little kindness and grace. This is a time for us to come together and work towards one common goal; slowing the spread of this virus. Our community is resilient, and together we will get through this. Please take a moment to reflect on those things which are most important in our lives and continue to do your part as we move forward.
 
Sincerely,
Mayor Thom Kolupski
