Midway through a news conference where executives were describing hospitals' herculean efforts to cope with a staggering increase in COVID-19 cases in San Antonio and Bexar County, the governor of Texas dropped a proclamation. Gov. Greg Abbott ordered Texans in most counties to wear face coverings in public and gave mayors and county judges the ability to impose restrictions on outdoor gatherings of more than 10 people. It was what local leaders had been imploring him to do for weeks, as COVID-19 cases spiraled out of control in Texas' urban areas.
