I'm not happy that I can't go fishing but I'm concerned that your state is not protecting you. It's interesting that your number of confirmed coronavirus cases are more than New Mexico's yet you aren't restricted. Trust me if I could I would be fishing too! Best wishes try and stay healthy!

I don't need the state to protect me.

We have almost 15 times the population as your state- of course we have more cases. Don’t lose any sleep over Texas as we will be aight.

Our state has a lot of transplants from those big states that people moved here to avoid the high taxes etc. so there is a large population that came from those hard hit areas, and they still have family and friends from those areas hard hit such as California and New York and others.
I can see a large exodis of people fleeing to get out of those areas and go to other states to get somewhere where the hospitals aren't over crowded and risk not being able to be treated because of the scare comments they hear every day.
Most of the infections started from people traveling from other states, and has now started to spread in the community in our larger cities.

How is keeping someone off the lake protecting them? Outdoor activities are encouraged, and there is even some research coming out now that states this virus may not be able to live very long in hot, sunny environments.

Try sitting in the sun for very long barefooted on a hot sunny day in south Texas.
I don't think any kind of virus could survive that for very long even in the shade!

You worry about New Mexico and your weak and liberal leaders. Us Texans will worry about Texas.

Thank you for your concern, however Hitting the local lake, I'm alone, anglers at the boat ramp are alone or with 1 other angler. People are not grouping together. Seems fishing is conducive to practicing social distancing.

We are actually under shelter in place in a lot of areas, with many more to come in the days/weeks ahead. The velocity of the spread is just beginning here but make no mistake it’s coming. Regardless that has little to do with anglers out fishing alone or with a family member they’re locked down with.

With the explosion of cases in Louisiana it'll definitely increase Texas's chances to also go up. I think our cases are much much higher than reported but the testing hasn't caught up yet.

Staying at home sitting on your rear indoors is the absolute worst possible thing you can do to a human body. Outdoors in the sunshine is as safe of a place as you could possibly be. This concept that being outside on a lake, or exercising, hiking, running, etc is somehow endangering the population is way past stupidity. It's insanity. It's really not that hard to make it out to the lake and still be "socially responsible". I'm so sick of seeing and hearing idiocy like this.

As to the government orders and over reach. I'll just leave that one largely alone. Lots of the rights and freedoms they have taken away will take years to get back. We may never get some back. I'm thankful Texas has not issued a statewide shelter in place order. I will vote against any politician that is for such an order.
