Governor Abbott's plans to reopen Texas this week will prove to be catastrophic. We are nowhere near the end of the curve, and all efforts to flatten the curve will fall short. Especially with the lack of virus and antibody testing, we don't have enough information to gauge the effects of the virus.

The current opening plan, which requires businesses to open to 25% of their capacity has no way to be enforced and can lead to dire consequences. State officials are leaning to the decision of cutting unemployment benefits for workers who don't want to go back to work out of fear of contracting the virus. This puts everyone from workers to patrons at risk and can lead to a second wave of the virus.
