The governor issued a new executive order that supersedes his original social distancing order (GA-08). The new order extends through April 30, 2020. Also, he has closed all Texas schools through May 4, 2020, and that date may be extended.
In summary the order provides that:
-Every person in Texas shall, except where necessary to provide or obtain essential services, minimize social gathering and minimize in-person contact with people who are not in the same household.
-All Texans should follow the President’s and CDC’s hygiene guidelines.
-All Texans should avoid eating out but take advantage of carry out and drive-thru restaurants.
-It does not prohibit people from accessing essential services or engaging in essential daily activities, such as going to the grocery store or gas station, providing or obtaining other essential services, visiting parks, hunting or fishing, or engaging in physical activity like jogging or bicycling, so long as the necessary precautions are maintained to reduce the transmission of COVID- 19 and to minimize in-person contact with people who are not in the same household.
-Texans should stay away from nursing homes and similar facilities.
-Schools shall remain temporarily closed to in-person classroom attendance and shall not recommence before May 4, 2020.
