Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order, passing an order to end the compulsory application of masks in all public schools next month. His order is in sharp contrast to the new guidelines issued by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which called for the removal of masks in the US.
The Texas governor, in his executive order, has continued to ban these masks working for and visiting government institutions in the state. Such an order has also been given by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, following the CDC’s new guidelines.
Abbott has said that Texas is recovering from the corona epidemic through vaccination. It is seeing progress. Antibodies are being formed in people. In the eyes of the government, masks will not be needed for a long time. This is the reason why the government has left it to the discretion of the people whether to apply masks or not.
Republican leaders along with Abbott have endorsed that people be left to decide privately whether to apply masks or not. It was needed in the time of epidemic because the number of patients in hospitals was very high at that time and the number of deaths due to this was also high. From about three months ago, when the cases of corona infection started decreasing in the state, there were voices of lifting the ban from the mask.
