In an announcement on March 2nd, Texas Governor Greg Abbott stated that he will allow businesses to reopen to 100% capacity and remove the state wide mask mandate. 

With over 2.66 million cases in Texas and 44,108 Texas deaths, we should at minimum continue the state wide mask mandate. March 1st 2021 there was 8,140 new reported cases alone. This mask mandate along with social distancing will help continue to slow the spread and keep Texans safer than fully reopening and no mask mandate. If Governor Greg Abbott wants to remove the mask mandate then he should resign effective immediately so we can have a governor that will consult the professionals and follow the science instead of a political agenda. 

With summer and spring break coming up, no state wide mask mandate, and opening businesses up 100% this invites trouble and more cases.
