Business restrictions triggered by hospital data lifted
02/01/2021

The hospital capacity in Trauma Service Area (TSA) O, which includes Lockhart and Caldwell County, has remained below the 15% mark occupied by COVID patients for 7 consecutive days, allowing more restrictive components of the standing Governor’s Order (GA-32) to be lifted.

 

 GA-32 (issued October 7, 2020) allows most facilities to operate at 75% capacity, unless they are located in a Trauma Service Area with high COVID-19 hospitalizations. An “area with high hospitalizations” is defined as “any Trauma Service Area that has had seven consecutive days in which the number of COVID- 19 hospitalized patients as a percentage of total hospital capacity exceeds 15 percent, until such time as the Trauma Service Area has seven consecutive days in which the number of COVID- 19 hospitalized patients as a percentage of total hospital capacity is 15 percent or less.”

 

Restrictive components of GA-32 being lifted include:

  • Occupancy in businesses or establishments operating at 50 percent capacity may expand to 75 percent.
  • Bars or similar establishments that hold a permit from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) and are not restaurants as defined in the Order may now reopen at 50 percent capacity.
