On April 1, Governor Abbott issued a statewide executive order that follows the essential services listed on the CISA 2.0 guidance that the federal government released on Saturday. Residential construction, including remodeling, is listed in these services.
This means that this order supersedes any recent local “Stay at Home” order.
Further, for any local government that did not permit residential construction, include remodeling, to remain operational, they must now follow the governor’s executive order. This order is effective beginning at 12:01 am on April 2 will remain effect until April 30.
