Question: Is the mandatory 14-day quarantine for persons traveling to Texas still ongoing?
Answer: Road and air travelers entering Texas from Louisiana will no longer have to self-quarantine for 14 days starting May 1, according to Gov. Greg Abbott.
“Any mandatory self-quarantine already in effect as a result of these executive orders, to the extent applicable to travelers from the City of New Orleans or the State of Louisiana, is terminated immediately," Abbott’s latest order reads.
