Williamson County Judge Gravell Opts-In to Open Bars Per Governor Abbott's Order

Starting Wednesday, October 14, Williamson County bars and similar establishments may offer on-premises services at up to 50 percent of the total listed occupancy of the establishment while observing Governor Abbott’s minimum standard health protocols. View the minimum standard health protocols for bars or similar establishments here.

On October 7, Governor Greg Abbott issued an Executive Order GA-32 to open bars and similar establishments in qualifying counties in Texas if the area does not have high hospitalizations and if the county judge signs an opt-in form to allow it. Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell signed and submitted his opt-in form to the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commissioner on October 8, 2020, so that more Williamson County businesses can be open to serve the public.

“Williamson County residents have shown that they can follow guidelines established to stop the spread of COVID-19 and get back to business. Not business as usual, but business that is conducted following the protocols determined by health professionals to keep everyone safe. We need all of our businesses to be open and operate safely so that everyone has the opportunity to work and support their families,” said County Judge Bill Gravell.

Some of the health protocols include that patrons at bars or similar establishments may eat or drink only while seated, except that in an establishment that holds a permit from TABC as a brewer, distiller/rectifier, or winery, customers may sample beverages while standing so long as they are in a group of six people or fewer and there is at least six feet of social distancing or engineering controls, such as partitions, between groups.

Where applicable, this 50 percent occupancy limit applies only indoors; the limit does not apply to outdoor areas, events, or establishments, although social distancing and other protocols must be followed. 

In providing or obtaining services, every person should use good-faith efforts and available resources to follow the minimum standard health protocols recommended by the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) found here https://www.dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus/. Nothing in the Governor’s Executive Order GA-32 or the DSHS minimum standards precludes requiring a customer to follow additional hygiene measures when obtaining services.
