Texas Governor says pro sports can have fans in limited numbers


Texas will soon allow outdoor pro sports events to have spectators, but their numbers will be strictly limited.

Republican Gov. Greg Abbott has revised a decision to let pro sports leagues host events without fans starting in June as part of the state’s move to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Abbott’s new order allows outdoor stadiums to host fans at up to 25% of their normal capacity. Leagues will have to apply to state health officials to be allowed to have fans.
