This week, Governor Greg Abbott announced his plan to reopen the state economy amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The governor said he will let his statewide stay-at-home order expire on April 30, and will allow retail stores, restaurants, movie theaters and malls to reopen on Friday, May 1 as long as they maintain only 25% occupancy and follow distancing guidelines.
The governor said his plan doesn’t mandate that all of those businesses must open.
“If a business owner feels unsafe opening at this time ... there is no requirement to do so,” Abbott said.
The following list of businesses is not all-inclusive. If you hope to visit a restaurant or business that is not included in this list, it is best to call before you go.
