Governor Abbott Continues To Say No Shutdown


Texas Governor Greg Abbott is promising the state will not shut down again over coronavirus. The governor told reporters today he was worried about the emotional strain put on people who have to stay in a single place for a long time. He also cited concern lockdowns wouldn't stop the virus from spreading, saying casual or home gatherings tend to be virus spreading events. The governor was also worried about the effect on the economy if the state was shut down again.  Abbott wants local governments to enforce the current coronavirus restrictions saying they were designed by doctors.
