Weddings and events being held at Garey House may return to 100% capacity and the use of face masks will be at the Client’s discretion.
Garey House staff is happy to assist with regulating mask use for attendees at the Client’s request.
Governor Abbott lifted the statewide mask mandate and is allowing all business and facilities to return to 100% capacity (Executive Order GA-34) effective March 10, 2021. Businesses may still limit capacity or implement additional safety protocols at their own discretion.
Individuals should, to the extent possible, minimize in-person contact with others not in the individual’s household. Minimizing in-person contact includes maintaining 6 feet of separation from individuals.
Individuals are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings over the nose and mouth wherever it is not feasible to maintain 6 feet of social distancing from another person not in the same household.
- As we continue to adapt to the ever-changing COVID-19 situation, we want to be proactive and as accommodating as possible for our clients while maintaining a safe and healthy environment for guests and vendors alike.
- Signage will be posted throughout the venue to remind attendees of best hygiene practices, face covering recommendations, and reminders for social distancing.
- Hand sanitizer will be readily available in each event space and as attendees enter the venue.
- Garey House may prop open entrances and exits with door stops during continuous entry or exit of attendees, when weather permits.
- Garey House asks that all vendors wear a face mask or cloth face cover while at the venue and the use of gloves is also recommended for catering staff and bartenders.
State of Texas Minimum Standard Health Protocols
The virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to others by infected persons who have few or no symptoms. Even if an infected person is only mildly ill, the people they spread it to may become seriously ill or even die, especially if that person is 65 or older with pre-existing health conditions that place them at higher risk. Because of the hidden nature of this threat, everyone should rigorously follow the practices specified in these protocols, all of which facilitate a safe and measured reopening of Texas. The virus that causes COVID-19 is still circulating in our communities. We should continue to observe practices that protect everyone, including those who are most vulnerable.
