COVID 19Special Statement from MSS.
(Friday, June 26, 2020) 

MSS continues to actively monitor the rapidly evolving situation around the spread of the COVID-19/coronavirus. Due to an increase of cases throughout Texas, MSS requests that masks be worn in all common spaces of the building. 

MSS shared meeting rooms are currently available for tenant agencies’ use only at a reduced capacity until further guidance is received from the state. Additionally, the atrium will remain closed until further notice. As state officials announce future phases of the plan to open Texas, MSS will continue to comply with the recommendations and restrictions put forth. In an effort to plan and prepare for these increases, MSS will operate approximately one week behind the recommendations.
