ACTION TO TAKE

Call Governor Abbott’s office at 512-463-2000. Here’s what you can say:

“Hi, I’m a constituent of Governor Abbot from {city}. My zip code is {zip}. I’m calling to urge him to direct more funds to increase both testing for and contact tracing of COVID-19.

Without these important measures, the Texas economy will take an even bigger hit that we’ve already seen. Thank you.”
