Gov. Greg Abbott is rescinding statewide face mask orders and reopening all businesses starting next Wednesday (March 10).
Abbott made the announcement Tuesday afternoon, saying that any type of business is allowed to reopen 100%.
The TSA-E’s COVID-19 hospitalization rate has remained below 15% for seven (7) consecutive days as of February 15, 2021, per the Public Health Awareness Dashboard. That means businesses in both Collin County and Denton County can resume occupancy rates per Executive Order GA 32, dated October 7, 2020. Businesses currently at 50% occupancy can now resume 75% occupancy rates, and bars may re-open with an occupancy rate of 50% under certain conditions.
