Community Centers, Libraries Reopen

HARRIS COUNTY – As the number of COVID-19 vaccinations approaches the goal of 70% of the population, Harris County has eased their restrictions on using county facilities for public functions, with most locations limiting attendance to 50% or 75% capacity, and masks being requested but not required if you are vaccinated.

In Precinct 2, Commissioner Adrian Garcia has opened all the community centers with the exception of Northeast Community Center on Bentley, which is being remodeled as part of the new All-inclusive County Park being constructed.

Harris County Libraries are all open, too, including High Meadows and Aldine in this area. One exception is the Galena Park library, which is closed for reconstruction of storm damage. However, the Curiosity Cruiser visits every Wednesday. Curbside service is still available at all libraries, but meeting rooms cannot be used.
