COLLEGE STATION AND BRYAN MAYORS DECLARE STATES OF DISASTER ON MARCH 17

College Station Mayor Karl Mooney and Bryan Mayor Andrew Nelson have both declared States of Disaster in their respective cities in response to the COVID-19/coronavirus. This declaration authorizes the furnishing of aid and assistance and authorizes each city to take any actions necessary to promote health and suppress the virus. This includes quarantining people and buildings, examining and regulating hospitals, regulating movement in and out of the city, establishing quarantine stations and emergency hospitals and ensuring compliance with these regulations.

The disaster declaration also recommends the size gatherings of all public and private events not be more than 10 people until further notice.

The declaration takes effect immediately and continues for seven days, but it can be renewed by each city’s respective City Council.

CITY FACILITIES CLOSED TO PUBLIC THROUGH MARCH 31
Additionally, the City of College Station, at 3 p.m. today, will close its facilities to the public to further reduce health risks to employees and to the public. City employees who are able to telecommute will do so. This protocol will continue through March 31, then be reevaluated. While this arrangement certainly will cause a level of inconvenience, city employees are committed to assisting citizens and customers as efficiently and safely as possible. 

Essential city services in both cities will continue.


Closures include our dog parks, splash pads, water fountains and restroom facilities.

Anyone with questions for a specific city department should contact that department directly via phone or email.

CLOSURES, CANCELLATIONS & POSTPONEMENTS

As a result of closing all city facilities, the activities scheduled at these facilities have either been canceled or postponed. Refunds will be processed for canceled rentals and programs.

REMINDERS

The City of College Station follows recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Texas Department of State Health Services, and the Brazos County Health District. We also monitor decisions made by our partners at Texas A&M University, College Station ISD, and other agencies.
