Texas governor lifts mask mandate and allows businesses to open at 100% capacity, despite health officials' warnings
Gov. Greg Abbott announced Tuesday he's lifting the mask mandate in Texas, even as health officials warn not to ease safety restrictions.
It will be very interesting to see how this works out. I wish Texas the best. I suspect it will be just fine and a lot of our precautions will seem excessive -- but we'll see. Some people in my extended family are quite ill or dying from Covid, so I'm hardly inclined to declare it's just a hoax. But people have to live and that means getting back to work and school.
