Last week Governor Abbott issued an executive order to safely and strategically reopen select services as the first step in reopening Texas. The major component of order will allow non-essential retail services to resume business if their products can be provided through pickup or delivery. The order will begin Friday, April 24.
“The business community is critical to the success of Seabrook’s local economy,” said Mayor Thom Kolupski “and the Governor’s Retail To Go order is the first step of many which will help restore our community.”
On Monday, April 27, Texas Governor Abbott will announce additional plans on how to safely continue reopening Texas. After the Governor’s press conference on Monday, the City of Seabrook will announce plans on how the city will start to reopen city facilities and park amenities. Moving forward, city operations will change for the safety of city staff and the community.
Retail businesses can find guidance on how to reopen safely from the Texas Department of State Health Services in addition to resources provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Links to these resources may be found online at www.dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus.
A list of local restaurants and retailers which may offer online, to go, or delivery options have been posted to www.seabrooktx.gov/supportlocal. Residents are encouraged to buy local whenever possible.
