EXECUTIVE ORDERS RELATED TO COVID-19

  • Governor Abbott Issues Executive Order Relating to Statewide Continuity of Essential Services and Activities during the COVID-19 Disaster. Effective March 31, 2020
    • This order states that, through April 30, every person in Texas shall, except where necessary to provide or obtain essential services as defined by the Texas Department of Emergency Management, minimize social gatherings and minimize in-person contact with people who are not in the same household. The order also continues school closures through May 4.
      For the time period this order is in effect, people shall avoid eating or drinking at bars, restaurants, and food courts, or visiting gyms, massage establishments, tattoo studios, piercing studios, or cosmetology salons; provided, however, that the use of drive-thru, pickup, or delivery options for food and drinks is allowed and highly encouraged throughout the limited duration of this executive order. This order does not prohibit people from 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 social distancing protocols are being followed. Visitors are also prohibited at nursing homes, state supported living centers, assisted living facilities, or long-term care facilities. This executive order supersedes any conflicting order issued by local officials in response to the COVD-19 disaster, but only to the extent that such a local order restricts essential services allowed by this executive order or allows gatherings prohibited by this executive order.

This executive order does not mandate sheltering in place. All critical infrastructure will remain operational, domestic travel will remain unrestricted, and government entities and businesses will continue providing essential services. For offices and workplaces that remain open, employees should practice good hygiene and, where feasible, work from home in order to achieve optimum isolation from COVD-19.
