 Please see below for specific guidelines related to establishments that should / should not be open, and specific requirements for each type of establishment.  Also, please find a copy of the “City of McAllen Safe Business Commitment Form” – a document which your business will be required to print, sign, and post publicly where your customers can easily see it.

City of McAllen Safe Business Commitment Form

·       The above form must be printed out, signed, and placed in an extremely visible location where it can be seen from the front door of the business (on the front door itself is acceptable)

·       This form is designed to serve as your business' commitment to adhere to federal and state guidelines for re-opening, and also serves to show that same commitment to your customers and their health
