  • City of Lockhart - Businesses mandated to require customers, employees to wear face coverings. 

    Lockhart Mayor Lew White, at a special meeting called on Tuesday, June 23, amended the city's declaration of a local state of disaster to include a provision that commercial establishments require customers to wear facial coverings. Effective as off 11:59 p.m. on June 25, all businesses in the city must require all employees and visitors to wear face coverings over their nose and mouth unless: 

    • A person is alone in a separate single space, whether indoors or outdoors; 

    • A person is only in the presence of members of the same household or residence, whether indoors or outdoors; 

    • When doing so poses a verified mental or physical health, safety or security risk; 

    • When the person is outdoors engaging in an allowed activity while alone, or with only members of the same household or residence, or while maintaining a consistent separation of six feet or more from others; 

    • When the person is eating or drinking in a restaurant or bar; 

    • The person is under the age of 10. 

    Businesses will be required to post a notice of the requirement for facial coverings at the business's entrance or in a conspicuous location. At their discretion, businesses may choose to conduct temperature checks or health screenings. Businesses are allowed to deny entry to visitors who choose not to wear face coverings. 

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