High COVID-19 hospitalization rates in the Victoria area triggered an executive order that closes bars and reduces capacity for other businesses effective immediately, per a state spokesperson.

“Many have been glued to the hospitalization rate for the last two months knowing they might be facing another shutdown,” said Manny Villareal, who works at a local beer distributor for several bars and restaurants in the area. “It just sucks it actually happened.”
