AUSTIN, Texas (KFDX/KJTL) — Gov. Greg Abbott announced Thursday the State of Texas will pause any further phases to open Texas as the state responds to the recent increase in positive COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.
Businesses that are permitted to open under the previous phases can continue to operate at the designated occupancy levels and under the minimum standard health protocols provided by the Texas Department of State Health Services.
Texas is currently in the third phase of a multi-phased plan to reopen Texas.
