[ARCHIVED] Ellis County Judge Todd Little Calls for a 100% Reopening

Judge Littles Response to Reopen Texas

With consultation from the Local Health Authority Dr. Leigh Nordstrom and following the science and data, Ellis County Judge Todd Little has announced he will file the required
requisite forms with TABC in accordance with GA-32 to reopen bars, breweries, wineries, and similar establishments.

On Wednesday, October 7, Governor Greg Abbott issued Executive Order GA-32 granting County Judge’s - in hospital regions with low COVID-19 hospitalizations - the ability to opt their
county into opening bars at up to 50% capacity beginning October 14th, provided they assist in enforcing health protocols .

“It’s past time for businesses to be wide open for Texans to enjoy life as we once knew it! I am requesting Governor Abbott fully reopen all businesses to 100% capacity,” said Ellis County
Judge Todd Little. “Our businesses have sacrificed way too much. Texans have shown they can safely return to work and school. We must resume life now!

“We have successfully come together and flattened the curve for our healthcare providers, our local hospitals have never reached full capacity, and we now have adequate PPE on standby,”
said Judge Little. “We don’t need new mandates. It is not the function of government to deprive citizens of civil liberties, but of every Texan to utilize sound judgement and personal
responsibility on how they live their everyday lives.”
