Texas Will Allow Stay-At-Home Order To Expire Thursday, Letting Some Businesses Reopen
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) said Monday he would let the state’s stay-at-home order expire as planned on Thursday and let some businesses begin to reopen in phases amid ongoing concerns over the spread of the coronavirus.
“Now it’s time to set a new course, a course that responsibly opens up business in Texas,” Abbott said at a news conference. “Just as we united as one state to slow COVID-19, we must also come together to begin rebuilding the lives and the livelihoods of our fellow Texans.”
His decision supersedes all local orders, he added.
