AUSTIN, TX -- Governor Greg Abbott is getting ready for Thursday's press conference and Texas is wondering if bars will reopen and restrictions will be eased.
According to Abbott's Twitter, on August 31, Abbott is expected to make a big announcement regarding coronavirus in Texas.
"I said last month that Texas wouldn’t have anymore lockdowns—despite demands from mayors & county judges insisting on lockdowns. Since my last orders in July, Covid numbers have declined—most importantly hospitalizations. I hope to provide updates next week about next step" stated Abbott on his twitter.
The press conference is scheduled to begin at 12:00 p.m.
