As a result of Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s Executive Order GA-36, issued on May 18, 2021, face masks will no longer be required to be worn by the public and most employees at most City of McAllen facilities beginning at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, May 21, 2021. Those facilities where face masks will no longer be required include McAllen City Hall; McAllen Public Library; McAllen Development Center; McAllen Police Department; Municipal Court; McAllen Public Works Recycling Center; Lark, Las Palmas and Palmview Community Center; Palm View Golf Course; the McAllen Convention Center; and Performing Arts Center.
Federal Emergency Amendment 1546-21-01_A continues to require that face coverings be worn in and on airport facilities, on commercial aircraft and in various modes of surface transportation, including intercity busses on all forms of public transportation through September 13, 2021. Therefore, members of the general public and those employees assigned to work at the McAllen International Airport, McAllen’s Central Bus Station and on all Metro McAllen city busses are required to continue wearing a face covering while at those locations until otherwise directed.
