While many state governors have ordered social distancing and mandated that churches be closed, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed an executive order that deems religious services as "essential."
Activist Mommy reports:
While the order mandated that all Texans must minimize social gatherings and in-person contact with people who are not members of their household, it clarified that “religious services conducted in churches, congregations, and houses of worship” maintain the right to continue uninterrupted as essential services.
The order also stated that “‘Essential services’ shall consist of everything listed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in its Guidance on the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce, Version 2.0,” and added that “other essential services may be added to this list with the approval of the Texas Division of Emergency Management.”
Abbott announced in a video that if people are going to attend those essential services, then they should obviously practice good hygiene, environmental cleanliness, sanitation, social distancing, and to work from home when possible.
Texas also set itself apart from other states when Gov. Abbott declared that his state would not be following in the footsteps of California and New York in releasing convicted criminals from jails and prisons in order to protect them from the virus.
“We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates,” Abbott said, “But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution.”
I think we can all take a lesson from Texas. Let's hope the rest of our governors follow suit.
Today I issued an Executive Order preventing the@release of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails.
We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates.

SHOCKING! Mass Burials in New York City Aren't What The Media Is Claiming
The media with some help from the internet revealed to everyone that massive trenches were being dug on New York City's Hart Island in order to bury some of the unclaimed or unknown individuals who have come into the hospitals in New York City over the last couple of months.
Media outlets played this up like it was something so bizarre and how could this even be happening, when in reality the true story is a little different than what they're making it out to be.
