A county judge in North Texas is calling on Governor Greg Abbott to completely reopen businesses in the state, based on the “science and data.”
Following Gov. Abbott’s announcement last week allowing bars to reopen in areas where there are low COVID numbers – and after a county judge approves – Ellis County Judge Todd Little on Friday issued a memo expressing the state should be fully reactivated.
“It’s past time for businesses to be wide open for Texans to enjoy life as we once knew it,” Judge Little wrote in his memo. “I am requesting Governor Abbott fully reopen all businesses to 100% capacity.”
Judge Little went on to highlight the economic devastation caused by the lockdown, and declared Texans can responsibly manage their own health.
