The Amarillo area of Texas, which includes Potter and Randall counties, has more than 2,700 confirmed cases of the coronavirus. The two cities will need to wait a week, he said. Abbott allowed malls, movie theaters, restaurants and retails stores to reopen at quarter capacity with social distancing on May 1, becoming the most populous state to do so at the time. "The elephant in the room is it wasn't until a blonde-haired Caucasian woman got involved that the interests of our political leaders were piqued", Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said, referring to the criticism of the jailing of Shelley Luther, who opened her Dallas salon in defiance of the order. This rollback is still on track and will lift restrictions on gyms, office buildings, and non-essential manufacturing plants this coming Monday.

On Saturday, the Texas Department of State Health Services reported 1,801 new cases - the highest single-day increase the state has seen. Meanwhile, more than 1,300 deaths have been confirmed in the state to date.

As of Sunday a total of 1,336 people have died from the illness. "Our goal is to coexist with COVID-19 as safe as possible", Abbott said.

And after the figures were released, Gov. Greg Abbott said the surge can be attributed to response teams sent to Amarillo earlier in the month.
