Texas Gov. Greg Abbott insists he’s following CDC guidelines as calls mount for him to issue a statewide stay-at-home order. Abbott said on Tuesday it’s important for people to stay at home and not spread the virus through the state.
Several cities and counties have issued stay-at-home orders this week because of the virus. The Texas Democratic Party is pressuring Abbott to issue a statewide stay-at-home order similar to those in other states.
