Texas Re-Opens Businesses May 1st

Update: April 28, 2020

Governor Abbott announced the next steps in plans to reopen Texas businesses. The statewide stay-at-home order will expire this Thursday allowing some businesses to reopen at limited capacity. Beginning Friday, May 1, retail stores, restaurants, movie theaters, and malls can reopen and operate at 25% capacity. Museums and libraries will also be allowed to open at 25% capacity, but hands-on exhibits must remain closed. This order supersedes local orders prohibiting these types of businesses to open, but the re-openings are optional. Businesses can choose to remain closed.
