Republican Texas Governor Prohibits Enforcement Of Mask Mandates

In an attempt to bring back American freedom, Texas Governor Greg Abbott recently signed an executive order that disallows any government agency from forcing people to wear face masks. The Republican governor’s order, which will take effect on Friday, will fine local governments and its officials up to $1,000 if they try to enforce the said mandate.

“The Lone Star State continues to defeat COVID-19 through the use of widely-available vaccines, antibody therapeutic drugs, and safe practices utilized by Texans in our communities,” Abbott said.

“Texans, not government, should decide their best health practices, which is why masks will not be mandated by public school districts or government entities. We can continue to mitigate COVID-19 while defending Texans’ liberty to choose whether or not they mask up,” added the governor.

Wearing a mask for more than a year is no easy task for any freedom-loving human being. It has done its part in containing the virus early on, but since the vaccine is here and people are being inoculated at an unprecedented rate, it would be great to remove a very taxing regulation and let the people breathe fresh air once again.

Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention came up with a new ruling that fully vaccinated people won’t need to wear the mask, whether they are indoors or outdoors. Social distancing won’t be enforced as well for those who have completed their shots for covid-19.

According to CDC however, masks will still be required on public transport and airplanes. Businesses may still request their employees and customers to wear one if they think it’s necessary.

Mask-wearing will still be allowed in most parts of Texas depending on personal choice, especially for those who haven’t been vaccinated yet. Because more than half a million children have received their shots already, they will not need to wear masks in school anymore starting on June 4.

The rate of covid-19 infections in the US has been falling since the vaccine was introduced. This trend will continue swiftly and people will soon be back to their jobs and businesses, with a clear view of the recovering economy that awaits ahead.

“The Covid situation in Texas is such that we can and should be open. We can eliminate government-required masks, but we always encourage people to make their own choice for themselves and for their own safety,” Gov. Abbot reminded his constituents.
