House COVID-19 Protocols

In accordance with the Texas Department of State Health Services and in an effort to combat the spread of COVID-19 in the Texas Capitol, House Members and staff are strongly encouraged to observe the following health and safety protocols in their Capitol offices. As always, the implementation of COVID-19 health and safety standards are left entirely to the discretion of each House Member, and each office may adopt any additional protocols the office considers necessary to protect the health and safety of the office‘s staff and guests.
