Additionally, Titus County Judge Brian Lee and Mount Pleasant Mayor Tracy Craig, Sr. are today issuing local state of emergency disaster declarations for the county and the city.

"We are doing this now today so we can get back to business as usual more quickly," Abbott said. According to Gov. Abbott, it’s the first time a statewide health disaster has been issued since 1901.
