Now that our region has seen a decrease in COVID patients in the hospital, restaurants can open back up to 75% capacity.
With COVID hospitalizations dropping across the region, restaurants and certain businesses are free to welcome back more customers and indoor bars can open back up. But when it comes to bars, they can reopen only if the county judge allows it.
This includes businesses and bars in Harris, Fort Bend, Montgomery, Matagorda, Walker, Waller, Austin, Colorado, Brazoria, Chambers, Wharton, and Galveston counties.
But, now that the region has had seven straight days of COVID hospitalizations under 15% of capacity, restaurants and other businesses can open back to 75%. Indoor bars can open back up, too, but only if the county judge says they can.
