LAREDO, Tex. (KGNS) - Starting Monday, several cities around Texas are loosening up their restrictions but that won’t include Laredo.

Thursday afternoon, Governor Greg Abbott announced that 75% capacity will be allowed for gyms, retail, restaurants, offices, and museums.

All of this is dependent on COVID hospitalizations remaining below 15% for health regions in the state.

Hospitalizations here are over 25%.

However, nursing homes and senior facilities can have visitors beginning next Thursday with certain precautions.

Hospitals can begin all elective surgeries, but he made it very clear that no bars/clubs are allowed to reopen.

The only regions excluded from the expanded reopening is Rio Grande Valley, Victoria, and Laredo.
