The City of Fort Worth COVID-19 hospitalization rates have remained above 15% for the past seven consecutive days. As a result, Governor Abbott’s Executive Order states occupancy reductions and closures are now required for businesses within the city.

Occupancy reductions now include; businesses with 75% occupancy limits are reduced to 50%, including restaurants and food service businesses.

Bars that have more than 51% of their gross sales in alcohol and do not possess a food and beverage license from TABC, are prohibited from offering on-premises services. Drive-thru, pickup and delivery options for food and drink remains allowed to the extent permitted by Texas Alcohol and Beverage Commission (TABC.)

The priority remains providing for the health and safety of the entire city. City officials are encouraging residents to support local businesses by using takeout or pickup services. Wearing a mask and social distancing remain an urgent message from not only city leaders but health officials as well.
