Colleyville Mayor Richard Newton issued a proclamation effective April 20 that immediately allowed elective surgeries, religious gatherings and gatherings of 10 people or fewer to resume, providing that residents still abide by social distancing guidelines and still limit gatherings when possible.
Additionally, the proclamation allows as of April 24 the opening of restaurant patios and one-on-one operations of hands-on businesses, such as gyms and salons. It will also allow for retail establishments to offer pickup and delivery services and in-store appointments.
The partial opening of Colleyville businesses and other operations come as Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order April 17 announcing plans for a phased reopening of the state’s economy.
Colleyville City Council is expected to discuss the proclamation at its April 21 meeting, a city spokesperson said.
