Washington County Judge John Durrenberger received a letter Tuesday from the Texas Department of Health and Human Services in regards to bars limiting its capacity or closing effective immediately.

According to Durrenberger, due to a rise in hospitalizations from COVID-19 in Washington County, bars that do not serve 51% of its revenue in food will have to close entirely and bars with more than 51% of revenue in food sales will have to limit its capacity from 75% to 50%.
