I am urging you to please reinstate and enforce the mask mandate and capacity limitations in Texas. We are not out of the woods yet, only a small percentage of Texans have been vaccinated. We need masks, social distancing, and vaccines to make it through this pandemic. The data is clear that mask wearing lessens the spread of COVID-19. It is of the utmost importance you reinstate the mask mandate as self protection comes from others wearing their masks consistently not your own mask wearing. Please listen to the scientists and public health officials and follow CDC and WHO guidelines. Wearing a mask is a small price to pay for safety and protecting others—it is the most patriotic thing we can do for our communities.
