June 25

On June 25, 2020 Mayor Ken Shetter enacted the City of Burleson Declaration of Local Disaster and Public Health Emergency (10th Declaration and Order) that states "all commercial entities in the City of Burleson providing goods or services directly to the public must develop and implement a health and safety policy" (Example of Health and Safety Policy for businesses).

Below is a summary of the mask requirements in the City of Burleson:

FACE COVERING REQUIRED IN ORDER TO ENTER AND REMAIN ON PREMISES. All persons over the age of ten (10), including employees, customers, visitors, invitees and contractors ("Patrons"), who enter this business must wear a face covering over their nose and mouth, such as a homemade mask, scarf, bandana, or handkerchief.

  • The requirement of a face covering does not apply if covering the nose and mouth poses a significant mental or physical health risk to the individual.
  • The requirement of a face covering also does not apply when an individual is consuming a food or beverage or receiving a service where the wearing of a mask would impair the performance of the service.

SOCIAL DISTANCING PROTOCOLS. Even with the use of appropriate face coverings, individuals should maintain six feet of social distancing whenever possible.

  • Employees should not work within six (6) feet of one another, except to the extent necessary to provide services
  • Patrons should maintain six (6) feet of separation from other individuals outside their household, to the extent feasible when inside the business premises.
  • Patrons of the business queuing or waiting inside or on the premises of the business must maintain six (6) feet of separation from other individuals outside their household.

VIOLATIONS. Patrons who are not wearing a face covering will be asked to put one on. If the patron refuses, the business has the authority to call city enforcement officers who can issue a trespass citation, if necessary.
