Texas Governor Greg Abbott has made yet another bonehead move in the “politics” of face masks. He recently signed an executive order banning face mask requirements by any government entity or at any government facility, including schools. Anyone who tries to impose such a mandate will be fined up to $1,000.
There are some exemptions, including state-supported living centers, government-owned or operated hospitals, Texas Department of Criminal Justice facilities, Texas Juvenile Justice Department facilities, and county and municipal jails — in other words, any place where if someone actually contracted Covid, the cause could easily be traced back to Abbott’s bonehead executive order.
This is just more craziness by Abbott to ‘own the libs’ and appease his crazy supporters who have made Covid, mask-wearing and/or other safety precautions a political issue or believed it conspiratorial from the start, thanks in large part to the former guy, his cronies and so-called ‘experts.’
