Governor Abbott to Give Update on Texas COVID-19 Response

Gov. Greg Abbott

AUSTIN (WBAP/KLIF) – Governor Greg Abbott will provide an update on Texas’ continued response to COVID-19 on Thursday.

It’s unclear exactly what updates the Governor will have. But under current coronavirus restrictions, bars are still closed, restaurants are limited to 25% occupancy, and outdoor sports venues can only be 25% full. Bar owners continue to plead with the Governor to allow them to reopen.

Governor Abbott will be joined by Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, Speaker Dennis Bonnen, Texas Department of State Health Services Commissioner John Hellerstedt, MD, Texas Division of Emergency Management Chief Nim Kidd, Texas Health and Human Services Commission Executive Commissioner Cecile Young, and University of Texas System Executive Vice Chancellor of Health Affairs John Zerwas, MD.

The update is scheduled for Thursday at 12:00 p.m. at the State Capitol.
