Gov. Abbott issues executive order closing bars and restaurants, shuttering schools, limiting visits at nursing homes

Drive thru and pickup service still allowed. Abbott stressed that his order is NOT a shelter in place order

Gov. Greg Abbott has issued a new executive order to draw Texas in line with states across the country that have ratcheted up containment measures to avoid the spread of COVID-19.

Abbott used what has become a daily COVID-19 news conference to unveil an anticipated new executive order: prohibiting gatherings of more than 10 in bars, restaurants and food courts, thus forcing establishments into delivery mode; stopping the use of gyms and massage parlors; and strictly restricting visits to nursing and retirement homes.
