It feels like it's been forever, but this Friday, May 1 we will start to feel a little bit normal again here in Texarkana. At least on the Texas side. Here are the types of businesses that can open and the restrictions we can expect to see as well.

Please remember we must still practice social distancing of at least 6 feet and it's still a very good idea to wear a mask.
Texas Governor Gregg Abbott yesterday issued the Executive Order below:
By way of Executive Order (GA-18), all retail stores, restaurants, movie theaters, and malls are permitted to reopen on Friday, May 1. These services must limit their capacity to 25% of their listed occupancy. Within shopping malls, the food-court dining areas, play areas, and interactive displays and settings must remain closed.
