Governor's Order on Covered Services

On May 18, 2020, Governor Greg Abbott signed Executive Order GA-23. This order allows Texans to provide or obtain covered services, which include everything listed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in its Guidance on the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce, Version 3.0, issued on April 17, 2020.

The Governor’s order supersedes any conflicting order issued by local officials in response to the COVD-19 disaster, but only to the extent that a local order restricts covered services allowed by the Governor’s order or allows gatherings prohibited by the Governor’s order.

The Governor’s order urges persons providing or obtaining covered services to follow the guidelines from the Department of State Health Services. Individuals are encouraged to wear appropriate face coverings. Additional information is available on the webpage for the Governor's Strike Force to Open Texas.
