Governor Greg Abbott Says Travelers Coming To Texas Must Self Quarantine


Travelers from coronavirus hotspots in the United States have been ordered to quarantine for two weeks once they land in Texas. Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed the executive order Thursday afternoon. That order requires passengers on flights arriving from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and New Orleans to self-quarantine for 14 days. Now the order states that travelers on the road and by air coming from the entire state of Louisiana must self-quarantine. In addition, Abbott said anyone traveling to Texas by plane from Miami, Atlanta, Detroit, Chicago, all California airports and all Washington state airports are also required to self-quarantine for 14 days. The order does not apply to travel related to commercial activity, military service, emergency response, health response, or critical infrastructure functions.
