'No more lockdowns in Texas,' governor says

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said Nov. 23 he will not reenact or implement further lockdown orders.

Mr. Abbott said, "No more lockdowns in Texas," when asked about potential lockdowns amid the current COVID-19 surge on CNBC's "Squawk Box."

The governor said automatic restrictions — including closing bars — that are implemented when a region's hospitalization numbers surpass a certain threshold are sufficient.
