Texas Governor Allows All Businesses To Reopen At 50% Capacity Effective Immediately

WASHINGTON (Pakistan Point News / Sputnik - 04th June, 2020) Texas Governor Greg Abbott in an executive order said all businesses in the state can reopen at 50 percent capacity.

"I, Greg Abbott, Governor of Texas... do hereby order the following on a statewide basis effective immediately: Every business establishment in Texas shall operate at no more than 50 percent of the total listed occupancy of the establishment," the order read on Wednesday.
