Governor Abbott issues Executive Order to safely and strategically reopen select services and activities in Texas

Gov. Greg Abbott announced executive orders Friday that will reopen businesses and state parks, ease surgery restrictions and aim to reduce further spread of COVID-19 in Texas.

Abbott made the announcement at noon from the Texas Capitol.

“We’re now beginning to see glimmers that the worst of COVID-19 may soon be behind us,” Abbott said.

The first executive order announced by Abbott creates a statewide strike force to reopen Texas. The strike force includes Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, Speaker of the House Dennis Bonnen, Attorney General Ken Paxton, and Comptroller Glenn Hegar.

The strike force partner with a team of medical advisers and will work alongside an advisory committee of business leaders to help strategize ways to safely reopen businesses.
