Gov. Greg Abbott announced Thursday September 17 that most of Texas will be able to loosen some coronavirus restrictions, including letting many businesses increase their capacity to 75%.

Retail stores, restaurants and office buildings, which have been open at 50% capacity, will be permitted to expand to 75% capacity. Hospitals will be allowed to offer elective procedures again and nursing homes can reopen for visitations under certain standards.

In Dallas County, the commissioners have mandated that businesses must require customers and everyone on the premises to wear a mask. 

A full listing of businesses as well as restrictions and minimum standard health protocols outlined by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) is located on the Open Texas webpage.

At a local level, as part of the Dallas County Economic Recovery Committee, our President and CEO, Beth Bowman, continues to provide input we are receiving daily from our business industry. This input includes best practices for reopening and re-officing such as preparing the business environment through deep cleaning and social distance workspaces, preparing employees for new methods like temperature taking, testing, staggered hours and access to childcare.
