Governor Abbott Issues Executive Order Scaling Back Restaurants And Closing Bars

Posted on June 26th, 2020

With the increased number of hospitalizations and the positivity rate in Texas increased above 10%, the governor ordered the closing of bars across the state at noon today, but they can continue to sell alcoholic beverages for take-out only. On Monday (June 29) restaurants will have to scale back to 50% in-dining occupancy. Also in the order, outdoor gatherings of 100+ people must be approved by local governments, with certain exceptions. (Enclosed is a copy of Executive Order GA-28)
