AUSTIN (KXAN) — Gov. Greg Abbott has terminated air travel restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, he announced Thursday.
The new order immediately removes restrictions in a previous executive order that mandated temporary quarantines for air travelers arriving from the following areas:
- New York
- New Jersey
- Atlanta, Georgia
The previous order on air travel restrictions had been in place since April 27 and said travelers from those areas had to self-quarantine for two weeks after they arrived in Austin.
The entire executive order is on the Open Texas website.
