During the press conference, Judge Treviño announced services that will be reopened in the county, including parks and beaches.

Treviño announced that beaches will reopen on South Padre Island.

However, visitors will still be required to practice social distancing and wear masks.

In compliance with Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s recent order, hunting and fishing are considered essential and is allowed in the county.

Parks across the county will be open, but similarly, visitors will be required to practice social distancing and wear masks.

Church services will not be reopen, however, churches are allowed to use a drive-thru method.

During the press conference, Treviño, along with Tamaulipas official Francisco Galvan, announced travel restrictions into Mexico.

Beginning Monday, Tamaulipas is implementing an order that determines when someone can not travel to Mexico based on their license plate number.

For example, liscense plate numbers ending in 0 or 1 are not allowed to travel into Mexico on Mondays.

We will have the list of which numbers are not allowed to travel per day once it is made available.
