Erath County Bars Can Reopen Today At 50% Capacity

County Judge Alfonso Campos has applied for the option to re-open bars in Erath County. It follows an announcement by Governor Greg Abbott, who declared that it’s time for bars to re-open, however, he left the decision to opt into that re-opening up to county judges. Judge Campos applied on behalf of the County late last week, therefore local bars can plan on re-opening today. Several local bars had already re-opened and have been operating after reclassifying as restaurants under TABC’s guidelines released in August. Businesses that were unable to meet the qualifications as a
restaurant may see their first customers since they were shut down a second time in June.
