Texas Governor Fully Reopens State- What Will This Mean for Dona Ana County and Other Bordering Communities?
Abbott made the announcement at a news conference in Lubbock.
“Every business that wants to open should be open,” Abbott said.
Abbott said that county judges can institute coronavirus-mitigation measures in their counties if the hospitalization rate rises above 15% for seven consecutive days. However, he said no one can be jailed for failing to follow those protocols or be penalized for not wearing a mask.
The governor said the state is in a much better position than when the pandemic started last year, citing a lower number of cases, a higher number of recoveries, and the wider availability of vaccines.
“Despite these changes, remember this – removing state mandates does not end personal responsibility,” Abbott said.
So what will this mean for counties in New Mexico that border Texas? We’re about to find out.
