From the City of Austin Communications Department (via email): “Governor Greg Abbott issued Executive Order No. GA-29 on July 2, 2020 requiring all Texans to wear a face covering over the nose and mouth in public spaces in counties with 20 or more positive COVID-19 cases, with few exceptions. The Governor also amended Executive Order No. GA-28 giving mayors and county judges the ability to impose restrictions on some outdoor gatherings over 10 people. Additionally, Governor Abbott’s amendment prohibits groups larger than 10, with few exceptions, and requires maintaining six feet of social distancing from others.
Consistent with the Governor’s Order, Mayor Steve Adler issued a new City of Austin Order on July 2, 2020 requiring everyone in city limits to wear some form of face covering that fits snugly over their nose and mouth. The Mayor’s Order also prohibits indoor or outdoor gatherings of more than 10 people, unless the gathering is expressly permitted by the Governor’s Order or a local Order.
