Today, Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order implementing Essential Services and Activities Protocols for Texas that will override previous local orders and be in effect through April 30th. The protocols allow exceptions for essential activities and services based on the Department of Homeland Security's guidelines on the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce, which includes "workers supporting the operation of firearm or ammunition product manufacturers, retailers, importers, distributors, and shooting ranges."

The governor also mentioned in his press release that it does not prohibit people from engaging in essential daily activities, such as hunting or fishing, provided that the necessary precautions are maintained to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and to minimize in-person contact with people who are not in the same household.

Thank you, Governor Abbott, for ensuring that Texans' Second Amendment rights are protected at this time and for allowing recreational activities with firearms to continue in a safe and responsible manner.

Tom Green County Executive Order

Seems like the fearless leaders in our county didn't get the memo. They just shut access to all of our lakes.

That's why the governor needs to step up and issue a state wide order. There is such a patchwork now that about all a person can do is stay home.

Afraid to contact him (abbot), just in case he decides to follow the lead of the genius in charge of Tom Green County.

Unfortunately the order allows local officials to issue tighter restrictions than those already issued by the Governor.

This is great. I don't want to be locked out of going fishing/

So we didn’t do very well in English class? I’m just guessing.

Well it seems our county officials got put in check and reversed course. Boat ramps are open but vessels are limited to family members only.
