HOUSTON – Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner is set to sign an executive order that will require all City of Houston employees to get tested for coronavirus twice a month.

According to a tweet by the director of communications Mary Benton, the only exemption to the new mandatory testing will be those employees who are vaccinated.
