TEXAS -

Governor Abbott has ordered all nursing homes in the state to test their residents and staff.

He's direct three state agencies to develop and implement a plan based on directions from the White House coronavirus task force.

"The State of Texas is working to rapidly expand our testing capacity—especially among vulnerable populations in Texas nursing homes," Gov. Abbott said.

The governor says this is an important step to ensure any potential clusters of COVID-19 cases in nursing homes are quickly detected and contained.
