STARTING TODAY: City of Houston employees must wear face coverings on city property


HOUSTON, Texas (KIAH) Starting today, Wednesday August 4th, all City of Houston employees must wear a face covering while on city premises. Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner has renewed that mask order.

This comes after Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed executive order last week barring mask mandates.

On Monday, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg announced she has tested positive for COVID-19.

She’s currently being quarantined and asking that people wear masks, social distance, and get the vaccine.

Meanwhile four trauma service areas here in Texas now exceed that 15% COVID-19 hospitalization threshold.
