So the governor here in Texas just announced that he’s rescinding all his executive orders for mask mandates, capacity restrictions, or pretty much everything else related to COVID-19, and is also preventing any enforcement of anything like that on a local level.
Apparently the fact that the cases have been declining, vaccines exist (but aren’t administered to a significant percentage of Texans), and people have PPE to wear if they so choose is reason enough to just blow away all COVID related restrictions, and that basically it’s our responsibility to protect ourselves, and that all businessses of all sorts should be allowed to open fully with no restrictions- bars, restaurants, etc…
WTF is wrong with him? Does he have brain damage or something? This is just one in many moronic things he’s done or said in the past couple of weeks.
I’m thinking I agree with Lina Hidalgo (Democratic Harris County (Houston) Judge) when she said that at worst, this is a cynical attempt to draw attention away from the ERCOT/PUC business.
