Fox News reports:
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said Friday he plans to sign an executive order next week outlining guidelines for how businesses in the state can start to reopen after being shut down over coronavirus.
“Next week I will be providing an executive order talking about what will be done in Texas about reopening Texas businesses,” Abbott said during a Friday news conference, saying it will be done “in a way that will be safe for that economic revitalization.”
The details of the order were not immediately clear. On March 19, Abbott issued an executive order closing schools, restaurants, bars and gyms in the state.
Just days after Texas saw its most coronavirus cases and deaths in a single day, Gov. Abbott announces he plans on issuing an executive order next week to outline how businesses and the economy will reopen.
