Despite Texas and Mississippi Governors’ Lame Brain Move: Some Companies Will Still Require Masks


Health Editor’s Note: While the governors of Texas and Mississippi may have lost what minds they might have ever had, many companies will still require that masks be worn in their facilities.  Thank you for understanding how important mask wearing continues to be….Carol

These Texas chains will still require masks once the state’s mandate is lifted

New York (CNN Business)The end of mask mandates in Texas and Mississippi has created a dilemma for businesses: Keep such safety rules in place to protect against Covid-19 spread, as leading health officials advise, or follow the two states’ decisions and loosen restrictions.

Leading US grocery chains, pharmacies, retailers and auto manufacturers, including Target (TGT), Kroger (KR), CVS (CVS), Walgreens (WBA), Best Buy (BBY), Macy’s (M) JCPenney (JCP), Toyota (TM), GM (GM) and others, say they will continue to require mask wearing at their stores and facilities by both employees and customers. There are exceptions, however, and some business advocates are concerned that the end of these states’ mask mandates will create new challenges for companies and their workers.


Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves both announced Tuesday that their states will lift mask requirements that have been in place for months to protect against Covid-19. The announcements come as Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations continue to drop across the country and more Americans get vaccinated. However, health experts say relaxing restrictions now could lead to another surge, especially with variants spreading.

  1. The Japanese, with all my love for their cute charming women, got to be the biggest robotic mind-controlled people on the face of the planet devoid of most critical thinking…a very naive people. I’ll just add that, according to police statiscs from a major European capital, Japanese tourists were those most likely to be pickpotted on the city’s underground lines by Gypsies. Why? Because they are not very attentive and easily distracted. US citizens, by the way, were second on the list! Saluti!
