The pandemic hospitalization rate in the region that includes Brazos County has been under 15 percent for seven straight days.

That allows pandemic occupancy limits to be relaxed.

Brazos County judge Duane Peters told WTAW News Saturday night that “I signed the TABC application on the seventh day, Friday February 5 and it was approved the same day.”

WTAW News has received a statement from the city of College Station on Friday that College Station police and code enforcement officers are recognizing occupancy limits returning to 75 percent, “Because the data now meets the criteria set forth by Gov. Abbott’s executive order”.

A statement from the city of Bryan referred WTAW News to Brazos County, because “Those guidelines are coming directly from the state to the County – cities are not notified by TDEM” (Texas department of emergency management).

Original story:

The pandemic hospitalization rate in the region that includes Brazos County has been under 15 percent for seven straight days.

That would make the region eligible to ease restrictions that includes business occupancy limits.

WTAW News has been told any changes would come from the Texas department of emergency management to the county.

We have asked county officials for more information.
