Governor Abbott Announces Temporary Closure Of State Parks And Historic Sites

Governor Greg Abbott has directed the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) and the Texas Historical Commission (THC) to close all state parks and historic sites as part of the state’s efforts to strengthen social distancing practices and prevent gatherings of large groups of people.

Texans are eager to get back to normal and get back to work. We can achieve this goal sooner by staying at home and stopping the spread of COVID-19. This is why I support Governor Abbott’s directive to close all state parks and historic sites.

“Social distancing is our best tool to curb the spread of COVID-19 and save lives,” said Governor Abbott. “The temporary closure of our state parks and historic sites will help us achieve this goal by preventing the gathering of large groups of people. I urge all Texans to continue to stay at home except for essential services as we respond to COVID-19. By following these social distance practices, we will overcome this challenge together.”
