Texas Gov. Greg Abbott issues new orders
Texas is the most recent state to close all bars, gyms and reduce restaurant capacity. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott issues new orders, this comes the same night as the governor of California issues shelter in place order. Texans all around the state are wondering if we are next. So are we? It’s possible. However, for the time being, Gov. Abbott has issued the order mentioned above. He also restricted gathering to 10 people or less and no longer allows visitors in nursing homes.
Will texas issues new orders?
Texas could end up going on lockdown, however at the very least that’s a few weeks away, and it’s highly unlikely that the entirety of texas would go on lockdown because of the vast geography. With that being said, follow the guidelines of the local and federal health agencies, this includes working from home if possible and keeping your gathering to under 10 people in the case of Texas.
Keep supporting local business
Local businesses are the lifeblood of the United States economy. If we stop spending money at these places they will lose their ability to pay staff, make money themselves and even lose the ability to pay rent on their properties. This means keep getting food from the restaurants you love, support artists that you love and ultimately make sure you are not hoarding your money in your bank account, that’s how recession begins, and that’s how small businesses are pushed out of the market. Continue your support during these difficult times.
Stay Safe or Texas may have to issue further orders!
The coronavirus is everywhere now. Don’t get caught on the crazy train, make sure you have only the supplies you need, don’t buy more than you actually need. Follow the below steps straight from the CDC website.
Wash your hands – Washing your hands has been one of the most important things you can do. You use your hands to touch everything. There’s no telling what kind of bacteria you have on there. A weak immune system could lead to a significantly worse time if you were to get the coronavirus.
y away from crowded areas – Try your best to stay out of crowded public areas, like sporting events, grocery stores (unless necessary), malls, movie theaters, and generally anywhere where you would be in close quarters with anyone you do not know.
Avoid touching your mouth, nose or eyes – When you touch these parts of your face, the virus then has a way to enter your body and begin its attack on your immune system.
Practice respiratory hygiene – Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early. Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.
Following these measures could help protect you and your loved ones from getting the coronavirus. Stay safe and follow any and all instructions given to you by your local health authority.
