Proclamation of Local State of Disaster/Emergency Conditions 

On Monday, April 27, State of Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced a phased approach of re-opening facilities, businesses, and restaurants in Texas starting Friday, May 1. While the Governor has cleared facilities to re-open at this time, they are not required to open their doors to the public. Restaurants must only open at 25 percent capacity. See our Occupancy Load Guide for more information and a quick occupancy load calculator. 

The City of Tyler has created a phased re-open plan for our services and facilities. Many departments will continue to serve the community through modified operations during this phased approach. All open facilities will adhere to the capacity limit set forth by the Governor. The City of Tyler will be rigorously adhering to all social distancing and hygiene standards. We encourage our customers to continue utilizing all online resources to limit face-to-face contact with our staff for both the customer’s and our staff’s protection.

See a complete list of closures, re-openings and facility phone information below. This list is subject to change.
