Governor’s Order: Less than 24 hours after Liberty County Judge Jay Knight issued an executive order requiring face coverings in businesses, Governor Greg Abbott issued a stricter statewide face-covering order. Governor Abbott’s order requires people 10 years of age and older to wear a face-covering when in public. The order says If a person is caught violating the order the first time they will be given a warning, and with subsequent violations, they are subject to a fine of $250 per violation. Religious services are not affected by the Governor or County Judge's ruling. Again, yesterday Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a new Executive Order requiring all non-exempted Texans over the age of 10 to wear a face-covering when in public. That order takes precedence over the local county or city orders.
