Yesterday afternoon Governor Abbott issued Executive Order No. GA-34 relating to the opening of Texas in response to the COVID-19 disaster. The order, which goes into effect March 10, 2021 at 12:01 am, includes lifting the mandate on wearing face coverings. Please note that the executive order does allow institutions of higher education to establish minimum standard health protocols.
While the administration anticipates additional guidance and/or recommendations from state agencies on this topic, the current CTC health and safety protocols remain in effect until further notice. Therefore, students, faculty, staff, vendors, and visitors are required to adhere to these protocols, which include wearing masks. The safety and welfare of the entire CTC community remains our top priority.
