With the recent spike in COVID-19 infection rates and increases in hospital occupancy across Texas, Governor Greg Abbott and local officials issued a number of restrictions on businesses and citizens in an attempt to slow the spread. Jackson Walker attorneys Brad Nitschke and Amanda Crouch give an update on a few of the critical issues affecting Texas citizens and businesses, including Governor Abbott’s order, GA-28, which placed the following restrictions:
- Ban on outdoor gatherings of more than 100 people, with certain exemptions, like religious gatherings.
- Bans individuals from visiting bars or other TABC licensed “similar establishments.”
- Bans commercial rafting or river-tubing.
- As of June 29th, restaurant capacity is limited to no more than 50%.
A number of local restrictions are in effect, as well. For more information about those restrictions, go to JW.com/Coronavirus.
