Face Coverings and Service Department Sign (HERE)
The Governor's Executive Order GA-29 states that "every person in Texas shall wear a face covering over the nose and mouth when inside a commercial entity or other building or space open to the public or in an outdoor public space, wherever it is not feasible tomaintain six feet of social distancing from another person not in the same household,” with exceptions for any person:
1. Younger than 10;
2. With a medical condition or disability that prevents wearing a face covering;
3. While the person is consuming food or drink, or seated at a restaurant to eat or drink;
4. While exercising outdoors or engaging in physical activity outdoors and maintaining a safe distance from others not in the same household;
5. While driving alone or with passengers of the same household as the driver;
6. Obtaining a service requiring temporary removal of the face covering for security surveillance, screening, or a need for access to the face;
7. While in a swimming pool, lake, or body of water;
8. While voting, assisting a voter, serving as a poll watcher, or actively administering an election;
9. Actively providing or obtaining access to religious worship;
10. Giving a speech; or,
11. In a county that meets TDEM’s criteria regarding minimal cases and whose county judge has opted out of the face covering requirement by filing with TDEM.
As the typical service department is not open to the public for insurance concerns, you may determine to post the attached sign (HERE). Please remember that any one leaving the service department or using common facilities such as the parts department, a restroom, break room or any other space that is open to the public, or within 6 feet of another, a face covering must be worn.
