Citywide Closures & Impacts
The City of Coppell's Declaration of a State of Emergency and Orders align with Governor Abbott's Executive Orders and those of Dallas County. Unless otherwise specified, the amended Orders will remain in place until Governor Abbott or Dallas County repeal or otherwise conclude the State of Disaster.
In accordance with Dallas County and the Governor's Office, residents should minimize social gatherings and in-person contact with people who do not live in the same household. Residents over the age of 65 are strongly encouraged to stay at home as much as possible and maintain distance from any member of the household who has been out of the residence in the previous 14 days. If a resident over the age of 65 must leave their home, they should practice social distancing and good hygiene.
Per Executive Order GA 30 (PDF), which was issued on September 17, 2020, every business establishment in Coppell may operate at no more than 50% of the total listed occupancy of the establishment. This 50% occupancy limit does not apply to outdoor areas, events, or establishments.
The following facilities may operate at 75% capacity:
- Dine-in restaurants
- Gyms, exercise facilities, and classes in Coppell
- In-store retail establishments
- Office buildings
Exemptions to Occupancy Limits
The 50% and 75% occupancy limits do not apply to establishments that operate with at least six feet of social distancing between workstations, such as hair and nail salons, barber shops, massage parlors, and personal beauty service providers. Religious services, child-care services, youth camps, recreational sports programs for youths and adults, and schools are also exempt from any occupancy limits.
Bars are to remain closed unless they offer a drive-thru, pick up, or delivery options as authorized by the Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission (TABC).
Hand Washing & Social Distancing
In every instance, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines are to be followed. Hand washing and social distancing are still important measures to slow the spread of the virus and should be observed.
