The Governor declared a state-wide disaster and decided to shut down all bars, clubs, restaurant dining rooms, and gyms. All grocery stores and essential businesses are allowed to remain open.
The state-wide declaration will remain in effect from March 20th through April 3rd. This could be extended even longer if necessary if the outbreak continues to spread.
Groups of people 10+ are not allowed to congregate according to Abbott.
160 people in Texas have been confirmed to have the coronavirus, with one death so far.
Houston, Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio's Mayors have all taken measures to implement city-wide closures previously to the Governor's declaration.
School closures still remain in effect as well from Elementary to Universities state-wide.
