Note: This article will be updated as new information is received.

Following the staggered easing of restrictions previously enforced to curb the spread of the coronavirus, Gov. Greg Abbott announced at an April 27 press conference that retail stores, restaurants, movie theaters and malls across Texas would be permitted to operate with limited occupancy starting May 1. He also confirmed he will not extend the statewide stay-at-home order slated to expire April 30.

Comal and Guadalupe County stay-at-home orders will also be allowed to expire.


Some New Braunfels restaurants will begin to open May 1.


Services such as dining takeout and delivery, drive-in businesses, room service, and drive-through services will continue operating but are still required to adhere to social distancing requirements of six feet between customers to minimize the risk of viral transmission.

Information for New Braunfels' eateries will be updated as often as possible but may have services or hours different than described due to the developing nature of the coronavirus outbreak.
