Governor Greg Abbott announced on Friday that he has rolled back a portion of the Open Texas plan, citing “recent substantial increases” in COVID-19 cases, positivity rates and hospitalizations. His order:

 

  • Reduces dine-in restaurant capacities back to 50%
  • Recloses bars, except for drive-thru, pickup or delivery options
  • Prohibits outdoor gatherings of more than 100 people unless approved by the mayor of a city or the county judge for an unincorporated area
  • Closes rafting and tubing services, including the rental of rafts or tubes
