Texas Enters Third Phase of Reopening

Order Reprints...

Gov. Greg Abbott on Wednesday said Texas will move into the third phase of its reopening plan, expanding occupancy for businesses that had been operating at 25% of capacity, including bars and restaurants. It also provides for other businesses, including amusement parks, to reopen.

For restaurants, occupancy may increase to 50% of capacity immediately under the executive order signed by Abbott on Wednesday. Those that derive less than 51% of revenue from the sale of alcohol may increase occupancy to 75% on June 12.

For certain other businesses, including hair salons, the 50% occupancy limit doesn’t apply provided that they operate “with at least six feet of social distancing between work stations.” Child-care services and youth camps may also operate without occupancy limits, and schools may hold graduation ceremonies.

The order stipulates that Texans “should use good-faith efforts and available resources to follow the minimum standard health protocols.”
