[ARCHIVED] City Hall to Reopen In Governor's 'Phased-In' Program

COVID-19/Coronavirus Information Update

Granbury, Texas – Granbury City Hall will reopen to the public, Friday, at 8 a.m. Normal business hours of 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday-Thursday, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Fridays, will be reinstated. City Hall has been closed to the public and working a half staff rotation of employees since the end of March. The reopening will be done inline with Governor Greg Abbott’s phased reopening of businesses throughout Texas and will only allow 25 percent of normal citizens numbers in the building at any one time.

Entrance into City Hall will be conditional and will be granted based on a digital temperature taken at the front door being less than 99.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Citizens visiting City Hall will be expected to follow all Centers for Disease Control guidelines, including:

  • Maintaining Social Distancing -- six feet of distance between individuals not from the same households. Where distancing is not feasible, other measures such as face-covering, hand hygiene, cough etiquette, cleanliness and sanitation should be rigorously followed
  • Washing or disinfecting hands
  • The wearing of face masks is encouraged, but it is not mandatory
  • Further CDC Guidelines can be found at

Citizens are also asked to “self-screen” before deciding whether to visit City Hall. If any of the following signs or symptoms exist, citizens are required to visit their health care provider and get tested for COVID-19 before visiting.

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Diarrhea
  • Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Known close contact with a person who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19.


If more people show up than are allowed under the Governor’s order, a line will be made outside the building with a one-in-one-out policy.
