Texas Closed For Business

It looks like Texas is shutting down internal domestic travel.
AUSTIN ― Travel by road from Louisiana into Texas at any location will require a 14-day self-quarantine by those arriving in a bid to stop the spread of the coronavirus, Gov. Greg Abbott announced Sunday.
Evidently, the Texas DPS will be telling travelers by road fro Louisiana that they will have to self-quarantine for 14 days.
When the first air travel quarantine restrictions were announced last week, DPS troopers were charged with handing out forms requiring arriving travelers to list where they would be carrying out their 14-day quarantine.
I never thought it would come to this.

Yeah, when state Governors make pronouncements like this, its getting bad. I'm pretty sure its due to flu spreading fears though, nothing personal. I recall Louisiana's generosity when Hurricane Ike hit Houston a few years ago. Not a good way to pay back.

The person who invents the machine that can determine COVID infection on the spot is going to make a mint.

Apparently that is the case right now. One company has gotten authorization for a covid test, only takes 5 minutes instead of days. Another company has gotten authorization for a covid test that only takes two minutes instead of days. Both are apparently in production at this time.
