Lubbock Businesses Authorized to Increase Occupancy LevelsA KCBD article written by Chelsea Collinsworth titled "Lubbock Businesses Given Green Light by State to Increase Capacity After Week of Low Hospitalization Rates" reports that Trauma Service Area B (TSA B), which includes Lubbock and 21 other counties, are no longer under high hospitalizations.

Therefore, the Texas Department of State Health Services issued a letter to Mayor Dan Pope and Lubbock County Judge Curtis Parrish to ease restrictions on businesses allowing them to resort back to occupancy levels described in Governor Abbott's Executive Order issued back in October.

The issued letter states that the Trauma Service Area B cannot exceed hospitalization rates past 15%. Nonetheless, since it has had seven consecutive days in which the number of COVID-19 hospitalization rates is 15% or less, TSA B no longer meets the definition of a high-risk area and may reopen to higher capacity levels allowable under GA-32.

Effective immediately, bars can now reopen at 50% capacity and restaurants and businesses to 75% capacity. Mayor Dan Pope and Lubbock County Judge Curtis Parrish credited the success to hard work by citizens. However, Mayor Pope reiterated that this doesn't mean we can do things without taking the precautions that we have learned over the past year.
