A message from Mayor Betsy Price

To the businesses and establishments of Fort Worth,

As your mayor, I know that our fight against the spread of COVID-19 has led to unprecedented circumstances, and that so many of your businesses and organizations are facing unforeseen challenges and difficulties. As a former small business owner, I recognize that you are working hard to balance the needs of your businesses, your employees and your own families. On behalf of the City of Fort Worth, I thank you for all you have done to prioritize the health and safety of our community. Fort Worth is a compassionate city with great promise, and we will not let this pandemic diminish our values of hard work, resiliency and perseverance.

On April 27, Governor Abbott issued an order that now supersedes local orders and restrictions, thereby beginning a phased-in re-opening of businesses. The City of Fort Worth will continue to work with the governor’s office to ensure that his phased approach is executed thoughtfully in Fort Worth. You can find the governor’s current order here.

The City of Fort Worth stands ready as a resource for you as we work to meet the challenges of the days ahead. In that spirit, the city’s Code Department has worked closely with Fort Worth’s Committee on Re-Opening the Economy (CORE Team), comprised of local business and community leaders to establish a set of helpful guidelines and recommendations as you work toward re-opening your business or establishment. To be clear, these are guidelines – not requirements – that are outlined to help you think through what it means to live, work and play responsibly during this time.

If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 817-392-8478 or via email.

Thanks for doing your part to keep Fort Worth safe, healthy and ready.

Be well,
Mayor Betsy
