The party's executive committee on Thursday night passed a resolution, 40-20, in support of moving forward with its in-person convention in Houston.
The convention will be held indoors at the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston from July 16-18. Committee meetings will begin on July 13.
The Texas Republican Party said the convention will have multiple precautions and safety measures for attendees, including thermal scanners at entrances and hand sanitizer stations throughout the convention.
Meeting areas will be "deep-cleaned thoroughly" between gatherings and there will be expanded seating allowing attendees to social distancing.
Donated masks will be available for delegates and attendees to comply with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's executive order that requires most residents to wear masks in public.
After the party's decision was made, the Texas Medical Association said it's pleased that the convention will comply with Abbott's order to wear face masks, and while masks will help prevent the spread of Covid-19 at the convention, "masks alone are not enough."
The advocacy organization of physicians also announced that it would withdraw as an advertiser from the convention.
In a statement on its website, the George R. Brown Convention Center and its operator, the Houston First Corporation, said that it does not make any decision to postpone or cancel an event, instead leaving it to the discretion of the event organizers.
On July 1, Texas recorded 8,076 new cases -- the state's record high of new cases per day since the pandemic began.
