Gov. Greg Abbott is scheduled to talk this afternoon about small businesses, but he may have something to say about pandemic-related matters. Last week, Abbott said an announcement would come soon about whether he'll relax pandemic mandates, including the mask order that's been in effect since July. The governor will appear at 1:30 p.m. at a locally owned Mexican restaurant in the Lubbock area to make a "statewide announcement."
