AUSTIN (KFDX/KJTL)— Governor Greg Abbott extended his Disaster Declaration for all Texas counties in response to COVID-19 on Saturday.
Originally issued on March 13, the disaster declaration provides the state with a variety of resources to effectively serve Texans as the state continues to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
“Renewing this disaster declaration will provide communities with the resources they need to respond to COVID-19,” Governor Abbott said. “I urge Texans to remain vigilant in our fight against this virus. Everyone must do their part to slow the spread of COVID-19 by wearing a mask, practicing social distancing, and washing your hands frequently and thoroughly. We will overcome this challenge by working together.”
