Yahoo: El Paso returning to coronavirus lockdown could be a sign of more to come in the US

Yahoo: El Paso returning to coronavirus lockdown could be a sign of more to come in the US. “In its reopening orders at the state level, Texas Governor Greg Abbott allowed businesses to increase capacity from 50% to 75% occupancy beginning September 21, unless a region’s hospital patients constituted more than 15% of total hospitalizations. That metric was different from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s emphasis on tying regions reopening in that state to a threshold of coronavirus test positivity rates, a more leading indicator of spread than hospitalizations. In New York City, despite a test positivity rate of 2%, indoor dining remains capped at 25% occupancy.”
