Governor Greg Abbott’s Executive Order Information

Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order temporarily banning social gatherings of more than 10 people, dining inside restaurants/bars, closing schools and gyms statewide. The order also restricts visits to nursing homes.

The order goes into effect at midnight Friday effective through April 3.

Abbott said Texans are encouraged to continue ordering food from local restaurants for to-go orders and delivery.

The executive order is not a shelter in place order, Abbott said. Abbott asked that only essential employees report to the workplace, encouraging those that can work from home to stay home.
