Question: Are bar owners obligated to require that customers wear a mask?
Answer: Yes, all individuals inside a bar establishment must wear a mask.
COVID-19 protocols outlined by the Texas Department of State Health Services state that “all employees and customers must wear a face covering (over the nose and mouth) wherever it is not feasible to maintain 6 feet of social distancing from another individual not in the same household.”
The only exception to this is when a person is seated at the bar to eat or drink.
