Thank your overlords… Texas Governor Greg Abbott has decided to reopen the state and abolish the previous mask mandates he issued. Although the move is an act of sanity in an otherwise warped and ridiculous slave system, many people argue that this sort of executive power should have NEVER BEEN ALLOWED in the first place.
Texas GOP Gov. Gregg Abbott said Tuesday that he will reverse the mask order and many of the other COVID-19 mandates he put in place last year.
Abbott made these statements exactly eight months after issuing the mask and other COVID-19 mandates in a statewide address, in an address to the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce.
“Too many Texans have been sidelined from employment opportunities,” Abbott said, “Too many small business owners have struggled to pay their bills. This must end. It is now time to open Texas 100 percent.”
Businesses will also be able to open to 100 percent capacity regardless of classifications starting March 10, along with other relaxations of COVID-19 mandates.
Abbott also said; “Texas is in a far better position now” due to increasing vaccination numbers and decreased hospitalization and positivity rate.
If COVID-19 hospitalizations rise above 15 percent, Abbott said, then county judges may opt for stricter coronavirus mitigation strategies but that they may not issue another mask mandate.
I just announced Texas is OPEN 100%.
I also ended the statewide mask mandate.

The left is outraged Governor Abbott would lift a statewide mask mandate in Texas but they have no problem with unmasked, unvetted, and untested illegal immigrants pouring over their border by the thousands
Their anger isn't about public safety, it's about politics & power.

First Florida, then Texas, now Mississippi.
Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves (R) announced on Tuesday that starting Wednesday all county mask mandates will be lifted and all businesses will be able to operate at full capacity.
Governor Reeves made the announcement shortly after Texas Governor Abbott announced an end to his state’s lockdown and mask mandate.
“This new order removes our county mask mandates and allows businesses to operate at full capacity without state-imposed rules or restrictions,” Reeves said during a presser on Tuesday.
Embattled Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) lashed out at Governor Abbott after he announced his state will be returning back to normal.
Newsom knows that Florida and Texas will expose the big lie that lockdowns and masks slow the spread of Covid.
