Florida, Texas mandate isolation for people traveling from New Orleans to stop coronavirus spread
To try and stop the spread of coronavirus, state leaders from around the country are taking a hard look at ways to keep folks who live in areas with high growth rates, like New Orleans, from spending too much time, if any at all, in their respective states.
The first state to restrict travel is Texas, where Governor Greg Abbott signed an executive order Thursday, requiring anyone traveling to the Lone Star state through a New Orleans airport, be quarantined for 14 days, or the duration of their visit, whichever is shorter.
“During the quarantine period the person shall not allow visitors into or out of the designated quarantine location other than a physician or health care provider and shall not visit public spaces,” said Governor Abbott.
