Mississippi and Texas Lift All COVID Mandates

Let freedom ring.

The governors of Texas and Mississippi have announced they are lifting all COVID-19 restrictions and mask mandates, with businesses able to reopen at full capacity within a matter of days.


Texas Governor Greg Abbott said Tuesday the state’s mask mandates and restrictions will end on March 10 as he vowed it was time to ‘open Texas 100 percent’.


This makes the Lone Star State the largest to date to end a mask mandate put in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus that has killed more than 42,000 Texans.


Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves almost immediately followed suit announcing he is rolling back all county mask mandates and removing statewide restrictions on all businesses from tomorrow, with the exception of maintaining a 50 percent capacity on indoor arenas and keeping rules in place for K-12 schools.
