Houston’s ABC News affiliate reports:

Just one day after temporarily pausing the state’s reopening plans, Texas is now increasing restrictions on some businesses in an effort to fight the spread of the coronavirus. Friday’s new order from Texas Governor Greg Abbott includes closing bars effective at noon today (except for to-go service) and reducing capacity at restaurants starting on Monday. Also, outdoor gatherings of 100 or more people must be approved by local governments, with certain exceptions.
