The Office of Congressman Vicente Gonzalez is open.
Office Visitors/Meetings: The Office of Congressman Vicente Gonzalez will resume in-person meetings by appointment only and continue to strongly encourage virtual meetings whenever possible.
For any in-person visitors who are not staff or interns, the Office of Congressman Vicente Gonzalez will request proof of vaccination and the completion of a daily self-health assessment, developed by the Office of the Attending Physician. This is encouraged even after the individual is fully vaccinated in order to screen for COVID-19 symptoms. A Spanish language version is also available here. Please be assured that this information will be kept confidential.
If an in-person visitor cannot provide and/or refuses to provide proof of vaccination status, they will be required to wear a mask. If they refuse to wear a mask as well, we will encourage them to conduct a virtual meeting. Accommodations may be necessary for visitors with disabilities. Masks will be provided to any individuals requiring one. In-person visitors will be asked to wait outside of the office until the time of their meeting or appointment.
If a visitor is not adhering to, or refuses to comply, with office policies, they will be asked to leave the office and encouraged to conduct a virtual meeting. For visitors, the Office of Congressman Vicente Gonzalez reserves the right to contact the appropriate law enforcement authorities, if necessary, to assist.
