Gov Abbott orders face masks in public spaces


Texas Governor Abbott ordered Texans in counties with 20 or more COVID-19 cases must wear masks in public spaces. There is no evidence from studies that masks work, but common sense tells you it helps keep particles from spreading. However, masks should only be required in public places where you will be in six feet of people, but he didn’t say that.

Abbott also signed an order allowing county and city leaders to impose restrictions on the size of gatherings.

There is no risk of prison. Violating it will be treated like not wearing a seatbelt.




  1. I just sent this letter to Greg Abbott and suggest every other Texan contact his office to send your own.

    You can take your executive order regarding face masks and shove it you know where! What part of our Constitution don’t you understand? I am a free American who does not need nor will accept some worthless backstabbing politician like you to be my nanny. These masks do nothing to stop a virus unless they are sealed tightly against your face. Furthermore, the mouth is not an entry point for a virus but the eyes are, what about your eyes? Are we to wear tight fitting goggles too? If somebody is afraid of getting it from me then those bubble boys need to stay home and leave every other liberty loving Americans alone. I don’t have the virus and would stay home if I did because I’m responsible. Pay attention to our founders like Benjamin Franklin who warned; “Those who are willing to give up liberty for safety will neither have nor will they deserve either.” Well this American refuses to give up my liberty because little Hitlers tell me to. I have lost all respect for you and will never show any support for you. We might as well have a Democrat as governor.

  2. Well said, Tim. It’s time for people to stand up and let their voices be heard. We now know that our representatives aren’t going to do the job we put them there to do. It’s up to us. Like Mr. Franklin said a long time ago, we gave you a republic, if you can keep it.

  3. Too many Republican politicians are choosing a path based on how much grief they’re going to get from the media instead of basing their decisions on the science.


  4. Misdemeanor offense. First offense comes with a warning. Second offense, $250 fine. Sounds like a revenue scheme to me..
