Dallas: Gov. Greg Abbott issued a new order that rolls back the opening of restaurants and bars.

Gov. Greg Abbott issued a new order pausing the plan for reopening Texas businesses. He has ordered to roll back the opening of restaurants and bars.
 
His orders were issued today, stating all bars and restaurants selling alcohol as their primary product must close at noon. They were allowed to reopen only a month ago.
 
Bars selling food can stay open for delivery and take out (the same rule applies to alcoholic beverage orders with food).

Restaurants are allowed to open with no more than 50% of their indoor occupancy beginning Monday. They were allowed to open with 75% capacity just a few weeks ago.

Outdoor gatherings of 100 or more people need approval from the local governments.

All business involving rafting and tubing must close.

In his statement, he said, "At this time, it is clear that the rise in cases is largely driven by certain activities, including Texans congregating in bars. The actions in this executive order are essential to our mission to contain this virus and protect public health swiftly."

Abbott is hopeful that new orders will be in effect for a limited period only.
He urged every Texan to take responsibility for themselves and their loved ones, wear a mask, wash hands, practice social distancing, and stay home as much as possible.

He further added, to stop the spread of COVID-19, we all must come together because we have done this in the past, and we will do it again,"
