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.
