“Back in Business”

Update 6/24/2020

The City of Wharton has established a “Back in Business” framework to help ease our businesses in re-opening their doors. The “Back in Business” campaign has been developed as the State and Federal government announced more business to resume. At this time, we are reminding businesses of the importance of following the recommended guidelines for reducing the spread of COVID-19.

The City has noticed that some businesses are not practicing safe and sanitary measures necessary to reduce the spread and is asking all businesses to refresh themselves with the re-opening guidelines. It is necessary that everyone practice safe and sanitary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to avoid further local restrictions like those seen in other nearby areas. We are also encouraging businesses that have a higher rate of interaction with the public (like restaurants & stores) to take extra steps to protect your staff and customers.

The City is asking that all customers be mindful of following social distancing guidelines and respect the request of businesses to use hand sanitizer or other safety measures those business owners feel are necessary to keep their staff and customers safe as we continue to move forward.
