Blue district paranoia is slapped down. Texas Supreme Court blocks county order for COVID-19 restaurant curfew. Austin is a blue area in Texas. So the city and county decided to pull a blue state trick and shut down the economy. They issued orders that Bars and Restaurants needed to go into a lock down. They openly defied the governor and Attorney General.
Well the Texas Supreme Court said not happening.
The Texas Supreme Court blocked local orders establishing an overnight curfew for restaurants to help limit the spread of the coronavirus, according to reports. The court issued the order Friday, conditionally granting state Attorney General Ken Paxton’s petition to block enforcement of orders in Austin and surrounding Travis County.
To Texas restaurants.
A formal statement.
“The Governor’s statewide executive order allows food establishments to be open for in-person dining on New Years Eve as authorized by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission. They should remain open. Happy New Year!”
