RICHMOND (Covering Katy News) – Fort Bend County Judge K.P. George has signed an order to make all businesses require that employees and customers wear face coverings. The new order goes into effect at midnight on June 25.

George said 77.5% percent of people who responded to a recent survey were in favor of requiring masks.

“Maybe we are tired of COVID, but it looks like COVID is not tired of us. It’s around here,” Fort Bend County Judge KP George said during a briefing. “It is about helping our community recover and helping our community combat this unprecedented time,” said George.
