More Than 70 Texas Counties/Cities Have Stay Home Orders


Texas Governor Gregg Abbott has yet to issue any shelter in place or stay home/work safe order applicable to the entire state. Nevertheless, more than 70 Texas counties and cities have issued such orders. Since not all orders are identical, and because some Texas cities are located in more than one county, businesses are advised to consult the orders applicable to their work sites.

Below is a list of orders issued by counties and cities throughout the state as of April 2, 2020. This list is not guaranteed to be comprehensive. The list is also constantly changing and counties and municipalities are constantly amending their orders. Businesses are thus advised to check periodically with local websites and legal counsel regarding new information.
