MAP: These are the counties where bars can open in Texas

Bars will be allowed to reopen Wednesday in 130 counties, according to the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission.

Updated Tuesday at 2:42 p.m. with updated county numbers.

As of Wednesday afternoon, more than 130 counties across the state of Texas opted into to allowing bars to reopen, the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission said.

The commission has launched an information page that includes a map of the counties where bars are expected to open Wednesday.

On Oct. 7, Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order allowing bars to reopen at 50% capacity in counties that opt in and meet state requirements for case counts and hospitalizations.

County judges still have time to sign and submit the form to reopen.

Some of the state's biggest counties are not opting in to reopening bars, including Bexar, Dallas, Harris and Travis counties.

Many have been shut down since Abbott told them to close in late June after cases began spiking across the state.

However, hundreds have worked with the TABC to reopen as restaurants.
