With early voting ongoing for runoff elections, both Harris and Chambers counties are taking precautions to ensure voters are safe from catching COVID-19. 

Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo’s mask order went into effect June 22. Any business providing goods and services must require its employees and consumers to wear a face-covering of some type when working close to other workers or the public. A $1,000 fine could be levied if store owners do not comply.
