Are bars opening too soon?

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced a plan to reopen bars at 50% capacity by Wednesday Oct. 14.

They can reopen once a county judge has certified the county meets certain COVID-19 case or hospitalization standards set by state health officials.

Bars can find certification form and instructions on the TABC, along with information showing the counties that have allowed bars to reopen.
