Texas Governor Greg Abbott has signed an executive order requiring passengers from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and New Orleans to self-quarantine for 2 weeks.
This comes after the White House Coronavirus Task Force advised that New Yorkers self-isolate for 14 days if they travel and after Florida required them to do go.
It includes passengers originating or connecting through an airport in those locations.
Passengers from those locations will have to designate a quarantine location and officers will follow up to confirm that you are there for 14 days. You must go directly from the airport to the quarantine location and you can only leave for medical care or to depart Texas.
Violators will face 180 days in prison and/or a $1,000 fine.
