An update from the city of Sugar Land – Nicole Solis, Assistant Director of Environmental and Neighborhood Services – May 11:

We are strongly committed to working closely with our business community to keep the public safe and our economy strong. We’ve continued this approach as the governor issues updated orders allowing the gradual reopening of even more businesses such as barber shops, hair/nail/cosmetology stores, tanning salons and swimming pools.  We want to stress the importance of the health protocols established to allow these businesses to reopen.

A few examples include 6 feet of distance between clients, no extra people at appointments, mandatory face coverings and washing hands upon entry. Sharing lessons learned at places that have stayed open all along, such as grocery stores, has been invaluable. We encourage continued patience while we all adapt to these new changes. They are intended to keep our city safe and prosperous.

This pandemic may be with us for the foreseeable future, so we must adapt and adjust to what lies ahead.
