Here’s which Texas cities and counties have issued stay-at-home orders

State News

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Texas cities and counties continue to issue their own stay-at-home and shelter-in-place orders after Gov. Greg Abbott declined to issue a statewide order. He said he preferred local governments decide for themselves.

So far, many of Texas’ largest cities and counties have already announced stay-at-home orders and many other have announced plans to follow suit Tuesday.

Stay-at-home and shelter-in-place are essentially the same thing. City and county leaders though have started moving more to calling it a stay-at-home order so people don’t get it confused with orders during something like a hurricane or active shooter.

Here’s a look at which counties currently have stay-at-home orders in place:

Stay-at-home order issued (18 counties)

  • Bell County
  • Bexar County (San Antonio)
  • Brazos County
  • Burnet County
  • Cameron County
  • Castro County
  • Collin County
  • Dallas County (Dallas)

  • Fort Bend County
  • Galveston County
  • Harris County (Houston)

  • Hidalgo County
  • Hunt County
  • Lampasas (City)
  • McLennan County (Waco)
  • Rockwall County
  • Tarrant County (Fort Worth)
