Governor Abbott closes state parks, historical sites

Texas Governor Greg Abbott, who has made a series of moves to help slow the spread of COVID-19, is making another move that goes into effect this afternoon.

Starting at 5PM, and until further notice, the Governor has ordered all Texas State parks and historical sites closed.

In a statement, Abbott said, "Social distancing is our best tool to curb the spread of COVID-19 and save lives. The temporary closure of our state parks and historic sites will help us achieve this goal by preventing the gathering of large groups of people. I urge all Texans to continue to stay at home except for essential services as we respond to COVID-19. By following these social distance practices, we will overcome this challenge together."
