Gov. Greg Abbott this morning shut bars back down and scaled back restaurant capacity to 50%. He also shut down river-rafting trips and banned outdoor gatherings of over 100 people unless local officials approve.
Bars must close at noon today, and the reduction in restaurant capacity takes effect Monday, June 29.
He also announced the state was putting a pause on any future reopening, though none were scheduled, and the announcement did not affect businesses that were already allowed to reopen.
