Governor Greg Abbott has announced plans for Phase III of reopening the state Wednesday. Beginning in April, many businesses were closed in order to follow social distancing guidelines in response to COVID-19. Over the last month, businesses have reopened with steadily increasing capacity.

 “The people of Texas continue to prove that we can safely and responsibly open our state for business while containing COVID- 19 and keeping our state safe,” Abbott said. “As anticipated, the new positive cases that we are seeing are largely the result of isolated hot spots in nursing homes, jails, and meat packing plants. Thanks to the effectiveness of our Surge Response Teams, we have the ability to contain those hot spots while opening up Texas for business.
