Governor’s Executive Order GA-14 and OCA Guidance

Monday, April 06, 2020 10:46 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

On March 31, Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order implementing statewide essential services protocols extending through April 30. The protocols direct all Texans to minimize non-essential gatherings and in-person contact with people who are not in the same household. On April 2, the Office of Court Administration issued a revised Travel Authorization letter noting that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has identified “workers supporting the operations of the judicial system” as essential workers. As officers of the courts, lawyers, as well as their necessary staff, support the operations of the judicial system and are therefore essential workers. The letter also notes that consistent with Gov. Abbott’s executive order requiring even essential services to be provided through remote telework unless they cannot be provided remotely, lawyers should lead by example by working in ways that encourage remote telework and social distancing. The letter replaces the OCA travel authorization issued March 26.
