Coronavirus cases increase in Colleyville, masks will now be enforced, what’s open and where to get tested

As of Wednesday, Colleyville had documented a total of 198 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and no deaths, according to the Tarrant County website. The number of positive COVID-19 cases has increased by 30 since Thursday.

On July 2, Gov. Greg Abbott issued an order requiring people over the age of 10 to wear face coverings in businesses and other public spaces, though there are some exceptions. Those who do not follow the order face charges up to $250. The order applies only to counties with 20 or more positive cases of COVID-19.

Colleyville released a statement on July 2 saying that the city “fully intends to comply with this order and asks that residents wear masks.” Previously, when Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley issued a mask ordinance, Colleyville officials issued a statement saying they “will not adopt any formal action enacting this measure nor provide enforcement.”

Outdoor gatherings that anticipate crowds of more than 10 people are prohibited under Gov. Greg Abbott’s July 2 proclamation, unless they are approved by the local mayor or county judge.

Tarrant County had 12,545 active cases as of Wednesday.
