FORT WORTH, Texas --
The Fort Worth District along with all the rest of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers continue our efforts to ensure the life safety, health, and well-being of visitors to our district facilities, our personnel, and the communities we serve during the COVID-19 Global Pandemic.
While the state of Texas and other states have chosen to end masking, social distancing, and other COVID-19 mandates; USACE is continuing those mandates as sanctioned on January 20, 2021 under Presidential Executive Order 13991- ‘Protecting the Federal Workforce.’ View the executive order here: https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2021-01-25/pdf/2021-01766.pdf
Under that order every person age 3 and older is required to wear a mask on properties and lands managed by the federal government, which includes our U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recreation areas— when physical distancing of six feet or greater cannot be maintained.
We realize you have a choice in where you recreate and appreciate your patronage, patience, and cooperation as we navigate with you the new normal during the pandemic and do our best to ensure your HEALTH AND SAFETY.
