The largest state in the USA is to end its mask mandate, effective on March 10. “It is now time to open Texas 100%,” the Republican said on Tuesday.
President Joe Biden has made it clear coronavirus restrictions are still necessary.
Similar rules were lifted in other states, including Michigan, Louisiana, and Mississippi. The undergoing vaccination program has boosted confidence for pre-pandemic lives in those states.
Yet the decisions put the main administration and senior health officials at odds with the Lone Star state and its companions who have reacted with dismay over the decision.
The director of the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned of a “potential fourth surge of cases” if the country lapsed into complacency. Covid-19 data shows that, while infections and deaths have declined, they are still at high levels relative to other countries.
The new executive order lifts all mask requirements and forbids local authorities from penalizing residents who do not wear a face covering.
“Too many Texans have been side-lined from employment opportunities,” Mr. Abbott said in a speech at the Chamber of Commerce in the city of Lubbock. “Too many small business owners have struggled to pay their bills. This must end.”
He is confident with the improved treatment and vaccinations, it is now in a “far better position”.
He said that with increased vaccinations and improved treatment for Covid-19, the state was “in a far better position now”. Texas has recorded more than 43,000 Covid-19 deaths making it the third-highest state toll in the country.
The Republican leadership favored former President Donald Trump’s relatively relaxed approach to imposing restrictions. But the approach created tension with other cities leaning toward Democrats.
To the states, it was more political. It was the choice between disease control and the economy, mask requirements and personal liberties. And from the outsiders’ perspective, many parties are taking advantage of this situation through the clash of ideologies.
With a year of quarantine did not bring much change, Governor Abbott decides not to follow the science. Despite warnings from health experts, the governor switches his focus to reviving the economic state.
President Biden – in contrast with his predecessor Mr. Trump – has made fighting the virus a priority for his administration.
On Tuesday, Mr. Biden said he was upbeat about the vaccination program. However, he urged Americans to remain vigilant in wearing masks and observing social distancing.
