COVID 19, or the Coronavirus

In accordance with Governor Abbott’s “Open Texas” executive order, the City of Baytown will be re-opening public facilities in a phased process. Following CDC guidelines, all City events, programming, and City venue rentals remain cancelled or postponed until further notice. City services will continue to run in a modified format through digital or other distance means. Beginning May 11th, we will begin providing curb side and appointment-only services at our public facilities while avoiding fully opening government facilities to the public. We will continue to keep you updated on our social media channels.

Planning for Individuals with Disabilities or Access & Functional Needs

If you have a disability or an access and functional need, you may need to take additional steps to prepare for emergencies.  

One of the biggest challenges to your safety and access to information is loss of electrical power.  You should plan alternate ways to charge your communication and assistive technology devices before disaster strikes.

Get prepared now by following these 3 steps:

  1. Stock a basic disaster supply kit.
  2. Inventory what you use every day to live independently.  Identify the essential things you will need to be able to survive for 3 to 5 days or longer, if people cannot get to you.
  3. Stock these custom essentials in your kit.  For example, your kit may contain items such as durable medical equipment, assistive technology, food for special diets, prescription medicines, diabetic supplies, hearing aids and batteries, a TTY, manual wheelchair and supplies for a service animal.
