Following the removal of the statewide mask mandate on Wednesday, March 10, the Alamo will continue to require all staff to wear masks. The Alamo requests visitors continue wearing masks while on the grounds, and they will be strongly encouraged to do so by staff and security.
Signage encouraging mask use will be present near the entrance of the Church and throughout the site. The CDC, state and local officials advise the use of face coverings in public spaces to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. We hope that visitors continue to abide by this guidance while onsite and in Alamo Plaza.
Since the Alamo reopened last August, we have implemented several changes to provide a better experience during the pandemic. These measures include staff and visitors’ wearing of a mask, hand sanitizer stations set up through the site, increased virtual offerings online, and the creation of a new timed-ticketing system so that visitors can experience the one-of-a-kind atmosphere inside the iconic Alamo Church while practicing social distancing.
