Odessa's 4-Step Recovery Plan for COVID-19

Beginning 11:59 p.m. May 3 through 11:59 p.m. May 16th

We are well into Step 1 which began April 25th
 -Restaurants may offer dine-in per state order and must follow those restrictions.
 -Nail salons, beauty salons, and barber shops may reopen
 -Retail still follows state order limiting occupancy to either 25% or 10% based off state formula
 -Gathering size limitations of 10 or less
 -Social distancing must be maintained at 6 feet

Step 2: (3 weeks, May 16-June 6)  - THIS STEP HAS BEEN PUSHED TO END JUNE 15TH

 - All businesses go to 50% of occupancy
 - Gathering limits of 50 people or less
 - 6 feet social distancing

Step 3: (3 weeks, June 6-June 27)
 - No occupancy restrictions on businesses
 - Gathering limits of 50 people or less
 - 6 feet social distancing

Step 4: (3 week, June 27-July 18)
 - No occupancy restrictions
 - Gathering limits of 250 people or less
 - 6 feet social distancing

After Step 4 is complete, it is expected that all restrictions will be dropped and anything further guidance will come as a recommendation.

At any point during this process if the healthcare system becomes overwhelmed we may extend a step or move backwards a step.

On May 11th, I will have to go to the Board of Aldermen for approval to extend the order through July 18. They have all been made aware as we discussed this at our last board meeting so I do not foresee that being an issue.

PLEASE work with business owners when they decide to begin reopening. Have patience and follow any additional instructions they give.

If you have any questions please email us at info@cityofodessamo.com
