Earlier today (7/2), Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an Executive Order requiring all Texans to wear a face covering when venturing out into public spaces.  The order encompasses anyone in counties with 20 or more positive COVID-19 cases.

The Governor also issued a proclamation giving mayors and county judges the ability to impose restrictions on some outdoor gatherings of over 10 people, and making it mandatory that, with certain exceptions, people cannot be in groups larger than ten and must maintain six feet of social distancing from others.

Abbott's entire statement can be viewed in the YouTube video above.
