Face Coverings Still Required Inside WSRCA Workforce Centers

On March 2, 2021, Governor Greg Abbott issued executive order GA-34, removing the statewide mandate to wear masks, and allowing businesses to re-open at 100% capacity.

Although the Governor has removed the statewide mask mandate and removed business capacity restrictions, it is the intent of Workforce Solutions Rural Capital Area (WSRCA) to adhere to the recommendations provided by the CDC related to COVID-19 precautions.

WSRCA has notified its workforce center and child care operators of the following directives to maintain health and safety standards in all WSRCA facilities during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

  1. The WSRCA requires masks to be worn in WSRCA facilities. Masks or appropriate disposable face shields must be made available to customers who do not have their own.
  2. The WSRCA requires all the current health and safety precautions as listed in the WSRCA Re-Opening Plan, last revised January 29, 2021, to continue. These safety precautions include: hand sanitization and hygiene practices, social distancing, disinfecting work and customer workstation usage in between customers, regular electrostatic fogging of office, temperature checks of staff and customers prior to entering the building, and controlled in-person services managed through scheduling appointments for services.
  3. If a customer does not wear a mask or face shield, staff must find an alternate method of serving the customer while minimizing exposure. Such methods may include curbside or virtual service delivery.
  4. WSRCA operates as an equal opportunity employer and programs, and customers cannot be denied services due to failure to wear a face mask.
  5. This directive will remain in place until the conclusion of the pandemic, or until rescinded.
