City to reopen indoor facilities to walk-in traffic

On Tuesday, February 2, the City of Lockhart will begin reopening its facilities to the public while taking precautions to ensure the safety of individuals.


The percentage of COVID-19-related cases in the hospital for TSA Region has maintained a level below 15 percent for seven consecutive days, contributing to the city’s decision to reopen.


 Per Governor Greg Abbott’s executive order, face coverings are required wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social distancing from another person not in the same household. City of Lockhart employees are following strict social distancing practices and will be wearing masks or face coverings to protect the public and co-workers.


 Below is a summary of the updated operational status of city departments. City leadership will continue monitoring COVID-19 statistics locally. Future operations are subject to change:
