What will happen without a mask mandate across the state of Texas? It might not be good news to many, according to recent data. ABC13's Keaton Fox breaks down the model projections in the video above.
Support for mask-wearing continues to be strong, according to the data. Three out of four Texans say they support a mandate and would continue to wear masks, even after the mandate went away.
It's too early for full opening, said IHME Director Chris Murray during a CNN interview Tuesday. While signs look good, he says the risk for numbers spiking again is real - as case numbers go up in Texas.

Reopen Texas: Houston live music venues maintain COVID-19 safety measures after restrictions lift

Card image cap


HOUSTON, Texas -- Mask on or mask off? That is the question.
Like many in the hospitality and entertainment industry, local live music venues are scrambling to decide what actions to take in the wake of Governor Greg Abbott's announcement last week rescinding the state-wide mask mandates and opening all businesses at full capacity.
Houston venues still hosting shows instituted strict health guidelines months ago, which included limited capacity, mask requirements, staggered entry times, and enforced social distancing with tables or cordoned off sections. For now, it looks like those most of those measures will remain in place.
When will life be back to what we considered normal before the pandemic? Marla Carter will take a deeper look at the future of entertainment on Eyewitness News this Sunday at 10 p.m.

"Anger, sadness, fear," said Dr. Bich-May Nguyen, a board member with Doctors for America.
"I'm frustrated," said Dr. Christina Propst, a pediatrician with Blue Fish Pediatrics. "We are doing our part, and so it is really a painful experience that our elected officials don't trust us, don't trust our expertise and are not listening to the science."
"We will be the largest state in the country, the largest population without a mask mandate in place and that's going to put all of us at risk," said Dr. Nguyen.

Texans awoke on Wednesday with a statewide mask mandate and occupancy restrictions in businesses lifted, a move some heralded as freedom and others as foolishness.
On paper, Texas’ rollback of coronavirus mitigation efforts is the most sweeping seen in the United States, along with a similar measure in Mississippi. In practice, vast swaths of Texas have rarely enforced mask or occupancy mandates in the past year, anyway.

Dallas Musicians Are Still Opting for Drive-In Concerts, Find Maskless Crowds 'Unsafe'


Nick Wright, a psych-rock artist in the band Caved Mountains, says it’s not the right time.
“We would love to do it. There’s a lot of excitement to go play shows, but it’s not the right thing to do,” Wright says. “Right now we’re focused on health and making sure people don’t get sick. We’re practicing here at my house. We’re not going into a jam space.”
Wright and the Caved Mountains worry that practicing in a space where other bands have also recently practiced could put them at risk of catching COVID. Since Grail Fest (a live-music listening and record-digging event that Wright had in the works since 2019) was canceled when the pandemic hit in 2020, the band has not done any live shows and isn’t planning any until it’s safe.

The Masks May Come Off, But Teachers Aren't Celebrating Spring Br


I got something I want off my chest...
In what seems like an eternity ago, March 4th 2020 was the date that officials with Texas State Health Services announced the first case of Covid-19 in Texas, The case was in the Houston area and travel related, and we thought, "No biggie, they'll contain this" When that didn't happen, we started down the path that leads us to now.

It would look like we are finally getting the green light and the all clear from the top dogs in Austin. (namely Governor Greg Abbott). And while the governor removed the mandate, the tongue in cheek lip service remarks that Texans have "Learned" and are prepared is just a nice bit of hogwash to go with the tom foolery of the move. The good news is across the state, folks for the most part still see the value in masking, and many companies have decided to embrace guidance from the CDC. The TEA has also stepped in and given each local district it's choice in how to move forward with masks and many are choosing to keep them in place for now.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Many people are trying to decide what they'll do next Wednesday when the state's mask mandate gets lifted.

National businesses have already taken a stance in Texas, saying they will continue their corporate policy of requiring a mask for employees and customers.
The owner of Marquis II, a longtime staple in West University, said he's frustrated because making a decision one way or the other could have big implications.

Dallas Music Venues Say They're Listening to the CDC, Not to Gov. Abbott


Not all Texans were rejoicing at the chance to show their faces in public again after Gov. Greg Abbott announced last week that businesses won't be required to enforce face masking or limit their capacity come  March 2. Abbott’s announcement set Twitter ablaze with backlash, including the trending hashtag RIPTexas, while President Biden accused Abbott (and Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves, who made a similar call) of “Neanderthal thinking.”
One of the most widespread bits of criticism over Abbott’s decision was that while businesses may still require patrons to wear masks the burden to reinforce COVID safety policies falls on employees, making them subject to harassment from anti-maskers, a recurring trend in 2020 when private businesses implemented mask requirements before any official mandates were in place.

Reopening Texas: Gov. Greg Abbott's order relaxing rules stirs fear of another COVID-19 spike

Card image cap


HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Like talk in every corner and kitchen table in our state, there is a lot of debate about Gov. Greg Abbott's order ending COVID-19 mandates in Texas next week.
Leaders who spoke with Eyewitness News Thursday night for our Action 13 "Reopening Texas" town hall said Abbott's decision came way too soon or not soon enough.
"I think this should've been done a long time ago," Montgomery County Judge Mark Keough said.
"What he has done is going to create chaos, confusion and conflict," Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner countered.
But as the head of the Texas Restaurant Association reminded us, the change is coming in less than a week and we all have to deal with it. Her members have spoken.
