Gov. Abbott orders bars closed, restaurants must go back to 50% capacity
Abbott also orders rafting and tubing businesses to close: “As I said from the start, if the positivity rate rose above 10%, the State of Texas would take further action to mitigate the spread of COVID-19”
Staring down record numbers
of COVID-19 cases in Texas – and liberated from the agitators at Empower
Texans after they mocked his wheelchair use – Gov. Greg Abbott
on Friday ratcheted back openings of business across the state.
In a new executive order,
issued Friday morning, Gov. Abbott ordered bars to close their doors throughout
Texas. Also, restaurants can operated but they have to
go back to operating at 50% capacity in their dining areas.
