Governor Abbott Eliminates Mandatory Quarantine for Louisiana to Texas Travelers


Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has issued an executive order Monday that eliminates a previously-ordered 14-day quarantine for people traveling from Louisiana. Under the executive order, a mandatory 14-day quarantine for travelers from the following areas remains in place: California; Connecticut; New York; New Jersey; Washington; Atlanta, Georgia; Chicago, Illinois; Detroit, Michigan, and Miami, Florida. Abbott’s order cites other states’ social-distancing restrictions and other orders that have slowed the spread of COVID-19 as a reason the travel restriction from Louisiana is no longer necessary.

What are your thoughts on removing the restriction?
