In partnership between the Galveston County Health District and county chambers of commerce (including Bolivar Peninsula, Dickinson, Friendswood, Galveston, Hitchcock, League City, Santa Fe, and Texas City-La Marque), Galveston County Judge Mark Henry has formed a county-wide COVID-19 Business Task Force to respond to the needs of the business community during the pandemic.

The purpose of the task force will be to develop and promote resources to assist the business community in remaining open while Galveston County continues to see cases increase.

The task force’s website, gccbtf.org is now online. The COVID-19 FAQ for business, Galveston County Promise pledge signup page, and the Open Texas Checklists (the minimum recommended COVID-19 health protocols for all businesses in Texas) are currently available, with more to come in the near future.
