Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) held a news conference on the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. He explained how the situation had quickly changed since the previous Friday when he made his disaster declaration, saying the number of cases of those who tested positive for COVID-19 had grown by over 300 percent. He also declared an executive order in accordance with federal guidelines in hopes of reducing the spread of the virus, in which the state would limit public gatherings to no more than 10 people, prohibiting visitation to nursing homes or retirement facilities unless to provide emergency care, temporary closures of schools, and restricting bars and restaurants to carry-out only. close
