Executive Order implementing Essential Services and Activities Protocols for the entire state of Texas.  This order directs all Texans to minimize non-essential gatherings and in-person contact with people who are not in the same household.  Today’s Executive Order follows the decision by President Trump and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to enhance social distancing guidelines and extend the deadline for these guidelines to April 30th.
