Governors of Texas and Mississippi Remove Business Restrictions and End State Mask Mandates
Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) on Tuesday announced all businesses in the state can reopen 100% and ended the statewide mask mandate.
It’s about time.
“So today, I’m issuing a new executive order that rescinds most of the earlier executive orders,” Abbott said. “Effective next Wednesday, all businesses of any type are allowed to open 100%….also, I am ending the statewide mask mandate,” Abbott said from Lubbock.
“Under no circumstance can someone be punished for not wearing a mask,” he said.
