Although Governor Greg Abbott Tuesday announced GA-34 which lifts face mask mandates and occupancy limits for businesses starting March 10, those planning to visit medical facilities, particularly CHRISTUS Health facilities, on or after next Wednesday should still be prepared to wear a face mask.

CHRISTUS Health, around 12:20 p.m. Wednesday, March 3, 2021 reported the state-wide lifting of the face mask mandate on March 10 does not apply to CHRISTUS facilities. All entering CHRISTUS facilities -whether as a visitor, worker or patient – will still be required to wear face masks, in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines, a notice on the health organizations’ social media page states. Hand hygiene and social distancing will also be followed, where possible, at CHRISTUS facilities as well.
