On Friday, June 26, 2020, Texas Governor, Greg Abbott issued an executive order requiring all bars and similar establishments to close at noon today, mandating that restaurants may not exceed a 50-percent indoor dining occupancy starting Monday, June 29, 2020, ordering all rafting and tubing businesses to close and finally stating that people should avoid outdoor gatherings of 100 or more.
Shortly after Governor Abbott’s executive action, Judge Lina Hildago increased the County’s COVID-19 Threat Level to Severe (RED) and issued an advisory urging all residents to stay home unless leaving for essential needs.
The City of Seabrook continues to follow all guidelines and mandates issued by the state and county. We encourage residents to take heed and minimize contact with others whenever possible. Per the current Harris County mandates all visitors shall wear a face-covering when inside a city facility and employees shall also wear them while working within close proximity to others.
City Hall and all other city facilities, except for Municipal Court, will remain open to the public; however, staff highly encourages residents to make an appointment before visiting a facility. Seabrook Municipal Court continues to offer a variety of remote services, and more information on how to conduct business with the court may be found online at seabrooktx.gov/court. Due to the current rise in COVID-19 cases and recent local and state mandates, the City of Seabrook has canceled the 4th of July Drive-Thru Kids’ parade scheduled for Saturday, July 4, 2020.
The City of Seabrook continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and will adjust operations as necessary. More information may be found online at seabrooktx.gov/covid19.
