On Tuesday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott declared that he will not implement another statewide mask mandate as other areas are already calling for reinstating COVID restrictions.
“There will be no mask mandate imposed, and the reasons for that are very clear,” Abbott assured Texans during an interview.
“There are so many people who have immunities to COVID [Chinese coronavirus], whether it be through the vaccination, whether it be through their own exposure and their recovery from it, which would be acquired immunity,” he said, adding that it would be “inappropriate to require people who already have immunity to wear a mask.”
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) current guidance states that fully vaccinated people can “resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.”
While Abbott recognized getting the vaccine as the primary way to fight the delta variant, he said senior citizens remain most at risk. However, over 80 percent of seniors in the Lone Star State have received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine.
“It’s only the younger cohort that are just now becoming to the age of vaccination that have not yet received a shot,” the governor continued.
“Kids will not be forced by government or by schools to wear masks in school,” Abbott added. “They can by parental choice wear a mask, but there will be no government mandate requiring masks.”
