He should have never closed our State and taken peoples constitutional rights away.

I find the Governor’s plan somewhat disheartening when he just made it easier to get an abortion than to get a haircut. The small mom and pop businesses need to open now not in three weeks . Some will never be able to recover from the Governor’s and the county judges and mayors grab of the rights of the people. Now when anything comes down the pike the mayor will want to shut down some business put not all.

You actually think that’s a good idea ?

Our cases are rising and the adequate test/contain structure isn’t in place This is careless and not a move that is pro life

If Abbott won't reopen Texas, Texas will reopen without Abbott.... #GetAHaircut #ImpeachAbbott #OpenTexasNow

Thank you Governor Abbott!

Too early to reopen. Cases still on the rise. Will you be responsible for more sickness and deaths?

As a doctor, this is an appalling lack of responsibility. There are thousans of asymtomatic carriers out there who can infect a geometric progression of others.

Thanks Gov Abbott!

What about the oath as a physician to do no harm. This is genocide

Guv Anarchist!

Nothing like putting the burden of a pandemic squarely on small business. If they fail now it's all their fault, right? And if they have to let people go? Well, that's just business. And what will you do to help? Well, that's not your problem anymore, is it?

Much safer than the mall

YOU FIRST

I think a phased reopening of the economy makes sense. The economic impact of this closure has been as bad as the physical impact, at least in Texas.

Great!!!

{insert ill-informed typical liberal "plague spread" response here}

Open our salons

I am still staying home.

Thank Goodness!

I just spoke with another Dr.who Said the opposite

Yep now you can go sit in a movie theater but you can’t wear a mask with a barber with a mask and gloves who has always had to disinfect everything between cuts. I’m a staunch conservative but you and Abbott and Patrick are all idiots.
