On March 31 Governor Greg Abbott issued a second executive order for the state of Texas. This document is related to COVID-19 preparedness and mitigation.
“In accordance with guidance from DSHS Commissioner Dr. Hellerstedt, and to achieve the goals established by the President to reduce the spread of COVID-19, every person in Texas shall, except where necessary to provide or obtain essential services, minimize social gatherings and minimize in-person contact with people who are not in the same household,” Abbott said.
COVID-19 is a rapidly evolving situation which needs the help of people working together through the world to self-isolate. The governor’s order closed all schools through May 4th and restricted the public to only going out for essential services.
