The Rio Grande Valley now has the green light to further relax occupancy levels for a number of businesses even as the coronavirus continues to spread in the region. The state’s top health official says COVID-19-caused hospitalizations in the Valley has fallen below the 15 percent threshold that Governor Greg Abbott set as part of his economic re-opening plans. That means restaurants, retail stores, gyms, and other businesses and facilities can allow patrons in at 75 percent of capacity. That’s up from the current 50 percent. The word came in a letter from the Texas Health and Human Services commissioner to Hidalgo County Judge Richard Cortez. Cortez noted though the coronavirus remains active and urged residents to remain cautious.
