Texas Tribune: Coronavirus cases in Texas are soaring again. But this time Gov. Greg Abbott says no lockdown is coming.. “This week, more than 7,400 Texans are hospitalized for COVID-19, and the positivity rate has exceeded 10% for over three weeks. But the governor’s strategy as the state heads into the holidays is to stay the course, relying on a 2-month-old blueprint to claw back reopenings regionally based on hospitalizations. The mask order remains in place, but last week he ruled out ‘any more lockdowns,’ and tensions are again rising with local officials who want more authority to impose safety restrictions.”
