Just as Governor Greg Abbott of Texas lifts covid restrictions and brings normalcy back in style, some other states follow suit.
Fox News wrote:
Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont announced Thursday he would lift virtually all coronavirus capacity restrictions in public spaces. Beginning March 19, restaurants, retail, gyms, libraries, museums, offices and houses of worship will be able to open at full capacity, though masks will still be required.
Theaters will continue to operate at 50% capacity, and restaurants will still have to close by 11 p.m. and limit tables to eight people.”
Even New York has begun listening restrictions. Gov. Cuomo launched a controversial plan involving “COVID Passports” as proof of vaccination of negative covid tests. While this plan may be flawed, it is certainly better than nothing.
Mississippi has also rolled back restrictions and lifted their statewide mask mandate. This trend seems to be the largest forward movement since covid first struck and caused lockdowns.
While Lamont is rolling back capacity restrictions, he is leaving a mask mandate in place. In a statement he claimed: “This is not Texas. This is not Mississippi. This is Connecticut, We are maintaining the masks.”
