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.
