Texas Governor Abbott Issues New Executive Order, Closes Bars
I honestly just want him to admit his mistake that we reopened too early and I’ll be fine.
Effective today bars, need to close at noon except for those offering to-go service and restaurant capacity is back down to 50%.
Also Starting Monday, no outdoor gatherings of more than 100 people can be held without express permission from local government.
Here is the entire executive order issued by Abbott.
As of yesterday, there have been more than 131,000 cases in the state of Texas with over 2200 fatalities, according to the Texas Health and Human Services website.
There have been 971 confirmed cases of COVID-19 here in Bell County. Earlier this week we saw a spike in our numbers in the age group of 20-29-year-olds.
In my opinion, this is what happens when the Governor cares about keeping the economy booming and doesn't care about the safety and health of your citizens.
Let's not discredit those not practicing social distancing either, and not wearing their masks and participating in events and gatherings where there are a lot of people.
Cmon people, let's get smarter!
