Brazoria County Businesses Can Return to 75% Capacity and Bars to 50%
Based on GA-32 Brazoria County Businesses Can Return to 75% Capacity and Bars to 50%
FREEPORT, TX – Based on Governor’s Order GA-32, Brazoria County no longer falls within
the criteria for a high hospitalization area. Therefore, businesses in Brazoria County can now
return to 75% capacity, and bars [as defined by TABC] can open at 50%.
In a letter from the Department of State Health Services to County Judge L.M. (Matt) Sebesta, Jr.,
Dr. John Hellerstedt, MD, stated that because our Trauma Service Area (TSA R) no longer meets the
criteria laid out in GA-32 for high hospitalization, businesses can return to 75% occupancy, bars
can open at 50%, and licensed hospitals may resume elective surgeries. Other limits are defined
for activities like religious services, outdoor events, youth camps, etc.
