Houston, TX — 3/24/2020 — During a press conference on Tuesday morning at 8:15 am, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo issued a “Stay-Home Work-Safe Order.” The directive takes effect at 11:59 p.m. Tuesday and applies to unincorporated Harris County and the city of Houston and other municipalities and restricts businesses deemed non-essential through April 3.
What This Means for You
“To put simply, this means that all of us should stay home unless our jobs are essential to health and safety.” A list of “Essential Businesses” can be found on the CISA list of 16 Critical Infrastructure Sectors. Parks can remain open as long as social-distancing (of at least 6’) continues to happen.
This list includes businesses in the Chemical Sector, Commercial Facilities Sector, Energy Sector, Financial Services Sector, Food and Agriculture Sector, and more.
What This Means for Houston Sign Company
Not all of our signage services are considered essential, though we are still able to service signage and printing for essential business sectors as part of their essential supply chain. We are running at limited capacity to support essential businesses until April 30, 2020. Until that time, our team will still be available by phone and email to respond to inquiries, though we cannot guarantee that our limited bandwidth will be able to support all jobs.
Houston Sign Company is keeping the health and safety of all clients and their families in mind during this pandemic, and our wishes for your wellbeing are foremost in our hearts.
“You can’t flip a switch and turn the lights off on a county of 6 million people, that’s not what this is,” says Judge Lina Hidalgo. The team at Houston Sign Company will be ready to serve nonessential business needs once the “Stay-Home Work-Safe Order” is lifted and it is safe to do so.
