Texas
Restaurants can remain open for dine-in service, but, starting on Monday, only at 50% of their pre-COVID capacities. Bars have been closed.

Florida
On-premise alcohol sales have been halted for bars, though places can still sell drinks to go. Restaurants can continue to sell beer, wine or spirits, provided they keep within capacity limits and adhere to social distancing measures.

North Carolina
A 50% capacity cap on dine-in restaurant service will remain in place for another three weeks. Nightclubs can serve within those limits, but customers are required to stand. Face masks are now required in public.

Louisiana

The state will remain at Phase 2 of its schedule for another month, meaning restaurants will remain at 50% of capacity. Bars can continue to offer on-premise service, but with a 25% capacity limit.

Nevada
Capacities will remain capped at a seating level that permits six feet of space between parties.

Maine
The reopening of bars has been postponed indefinitely. Dine-in restaurant capacities remain at 50 people per room.

Idaho
A 50-person cap on gatherings will continue. Bars can remain open, but nightclubs can only serve standing customers.

Ada County, Idaho
Bars have been closed, and restaurants must return to such Phase 3 opening requirements as keeping their bar tops unused. Gatherings cannot exceed 50 people.
