On March 19th, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an Executive Order to implement the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for social distancing. This action included school closures, limiting social gatherings, and advising Texans to avoid eating or drinking at bars and restaurants.
According to Governor Abbott, these strategies are working, and on March 31st Governor Abbott issued a second Executive Order implementing Essential Services and Activities Protocols, which extend and expand the social distancing strategies throughout the state of Texas.
In short, Texans are expected to limit personal interaction that can lead to the spread of COVID-19, while also still having the freedom to conduct essential daily activities such as going to the grocery store, pharmacies, and other establishments that sell household goods.
