And its all coming from Greg Abbott and the county judges.
Actually Abbot pulled back what some of the crazier judges did and said you can’t close the churches down. All the can do is restrict to a maximum number of people allowed ( the lowest I’ve heard of is ten at a time.
That is probably why the judges order is written in such a convoluted manner.
Now, it isn't nice to lie on a thread about churches.
"Abbott said religious services can continue, but should be conducted remotely or if held in person should follow presidential or Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
Abbott said if local orders conflict with these rules, the statewide order trumps local ones. Local jurisdictions still have flexibility to impose standards not mentioned in the governors order, however."
