SAN ANTONIO – Governor Greg Abbott announced an extension of the State Disaster Declaration for all Texas counties for COVID-19.
The declaration was originally issued on March 13 and provides the state a variety of resources to aid Texas in mitigating the spread of the virus.
Abbott said the extension was made to aid communities responding to COVID-19 case surges.
“Renewing this Disaster Declaration will provide communities with the resources they need to respond to COVID-19,” Abbott said in a statement. “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.”
