Texas Institutes Checkpoints for COVID-19 Along the Texas/Louisiana Border

The Texas Department of Public Safety has instituted checkpoints at various points along the Louisiana/Texas border. As of 8:00 a.m. Sunday, April 5, this included the Texas end of the bridge over Toledo Bend linking the two states. There are also checkpoints along I-10, I-20 and other entry points. Texas law enforcement is also heavily patrolling the border area. As this is an extremely fluid, rapidly changing situation, the Natchitoches Parish Journal is providing links for our readers to get the latest information directly. The photographs for this article are from the checkpoint across from Sabine parish and were taken Sunday morning.
