March 19, 2020

“Gov­er­nor Abbott declared that Texas is now a pub­lic health dis­as­ter, and has issued an exec­u­tive order imple­ment­ing CDC stan­dards statewide: No gath­er­ings larg­er than 10 peo­ple, all gyms, nurs­ing homes and schools will be closed. Restau­rants and bars will be closed except for take-out or deliv­ery until fur­ther notice. This exec­u­tive order begins Fri­day at mid­night and will expire April 3rd, with the poten­tial of renew­al and exten­sion.

This is for the safe­ty of you and those around you as we bat­tle COVID-19 and work to avoid spread­ing the virus. Let’s con­tin­ue to not be fear­ful or pan­ic, but use facts and com­mon sense in our every­day lives.”- State Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Kyle Biedermann
