WHAT WE KNOW:
Gov. Greg Abbott said it’s time to “open Texas 100%” Tuesday, citing declining hospitalizations across the state as more people are vaccinated against the coronavirus.
• “Texas is in a far better position now than when I issued my last executive order back in October,” he said. “Now, Texans have mastered the daily habits to avoid getting COVID.”
Today Texas will report a new one day record for the number of people receiving vaccines—more than 216,000.
We are now providing more than 1 million Vaccines a week.
This is a big reason why hospitalizations are at the lowest level in four months.
