The City of Houston is practicing social distancing in efforts to keep public session attendees and our employees healthy. Speakers are requested to observe the 6 ft. distancing recommendation and wear a mask while at City Hall. A mask will be provided to those speakers who may need one. We ask that you do not bring extra guests or family members as only speakers will be allowed in Council Chambers. Thank you for assisting us in our efforts to ensure a safe working environment.”
