After shutting down dine-in services March 19 and a brief reopening with capacity limits which lasted from May 22 to the end of June, bars in Washington County will be allowed to reopen Wednesday.

The announcement follows Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive order on Oct. 7 to open bars in qualifying counties in Texas. The order defines qualifying counties as areas which have had seven consecutive days with the number of COVID-19 hospitalized patients making up 15% or less of the total hospital capacity.
