Mississippi Joins Texas In Lifting Mask Mandate

Mississippi Republican Governor Tate Reeve announced Tuesday that he is lifting the state’s mask mandates beginning Wednesday. As a result, businesses can resume operations at full capacity. This comes almost two months after President Joe Biden issued a federal mask mandate to prevent the spread of coronavirus. This was one of his first executive orders during his first day in office.

‘It is Time’

“Starting tomorrow, we are lifting all of our county mask mandates and businesses will be able to operate at full capacity without any state-imposed rules. Our hospitalizations and case numbers have plummeted, and the vaccine is being rapidly distributed. It is the time!” Reeves tweeted yesterday. “Executive orders that interfered with peoples’ lives were the worst, but the only possible, intervention for much of the last year. Now, we are putting our focus on rapid vaccine distribution. We are getting out of the business of telling people what they can and cannot do,” the governor added. 

Reeves said that Mississippi was among the 4 or 5 most open states throughout this crisis. As a result, the state managed to get more jobs and faster economic recovery. He said that what the state put in place wasn’t a light burden, but only because the rest of the US implemented harsher regulations.  “That’s good, but we need to recognize that none of these orders, in any state, are anything short of unprecedented. They have to end at the earliest possible moment. This is that moment for Mississippi,” Reeves continued. 

Mississippi Removing Mask Mandate After Texas

Reeves’ announcement followed Texas as the Lone Star State announced earlier it will remove the mask mandate next week. Texas will also allow businesses to return to full capacity. Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that too many Texans lost employment opportunities because of strict mandates. In addition, many small business owners struggle to pay the bill. “This must end. It is now time to open Texas 100%,” Abbott said. 

“So today, I’m issuing a new executive order that rescinds most of the earlier executive orders. Effective next Wednesday, all businesses of any type are allowed to open 100%. That includes any type of entity in Texas. Also, I’m ending the statewide mask mandate,” Abbott announced. 

Individual Responsibility Remains

Abbott did caution that individual responsibility should continue even as the mask mandate stops. “Today’s announcement does not abandon the safe practices that Texans have mastered over the past year. Instead, it’s a reminder that each person has their own role to play in their own personal safety as well as in the safety of others,” he said. Abbott reminded his constituents that they should manage individual safety every day as a matter of personal responsibility and not because it’s a government mandate. “Individual responsibility is a corollary to individual freedom, we can have both,” Abbott added.

“Texans should continue following medical advice on preventing COVID just as they do on other medical issues. That is exactly how Texans were able to deal with infectious diseases in the past, like H1N1. They followed safe practices, and they got medical treatment when it was needed,” he said.

CDC Cautions Against Reopening

A day earlier, the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) cautioned against reopening too early. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky strongly recommended states reconsider before rolling back the mandates. “I am really worried about reports that more states are rolling back the exact public health measures we have recommended to protect people from Covid-19,” Walensky said at the daily White House Covid-19 briefing.”Please hear me clearly. At this level of cases with variants spreading, we stand to completely lose the hard-earned ground we have gained,” she added.

    Fucking idoits should have waited another month till more people had the covid 19 vaccine but of course there will be dickheads who dont understand that the masks help to slow covid. Oh well more people to die because yet again you got some state wanker who thinks he knows it all.

  • Kerry Woods says:

    I agree with texas and Mississippi mask are stupid communist idea freedom is the rule of law and florida proved it works

  • glenda says:

    Finally our lawmakers are getting the message—Mask don’t work! About time we resended the mask mandates! Thanks Texas, South Dakota, Mississippi, and other states..

  • Van Taylor says:

    The more these mask requirements, lockdowns, and school closures continue, the more I believe we’re being manipulated by swamp creatures from the “Deep State,” Democrats and Progressive Socialists, who thrive on keeping us in fear, relying upon fake “science,” and intent on controlling every aspect of our lives. Some of their prohibitions and prescriptions were totally absurd, but people with a herd mentality unquestionably followed them. With the roll-out of the vaccine, the “Deep State” swamp creatures, and Democrats and Progressive Socialists are losing their grip on the fear factor, which has enabled them to control every aspect of our lives. But enough is finally enough!

  • Shelia J says:

    The mask really are not doing any good anyway, I believe that it should be a personal decision. I personally don’t believe the numbers the media is reporting, it’s a plot.

  • Shadow Warrior says:

    Enough lies from everyone, lockdowns dont wok like these fucking masks. It’s up to each person. Grow the fuck the up already & get educated.

  • Joe says:

    Dr. Fauci is a complete idiot…Get the vaccine and trash the masks! For those that do not want to take the vaccine, do not expect others who have taken the vaccine to wear a mask because of you people who don’t want to take the vaccine!

  • Angelina says:

    The government found a way to charge us for the last element on earth, air. We have to have a license for every other element of living off of the land. They put fear into us with our holding anyone responsible. Follow the money trail.

  • Kathy says:

    Finally our prayers are answered… now to get down to business and stop all this ridiculous crap the communist left is trying to promote. Way to go Governor Abbott!!!!

  • Sonny McGinn says:

    Van Taylor said is like it is. The mask should have come off long ago. It’s too late for some of the small businesses who will never be able to recover. Also case after case where people have stayed home and wore mask in the home, no company allowed in their homes, had food delivered to their front door. Then after all these precautions, they still came down with the Covid crap. Florida proved that it was a mistake to keep everything shut down including breathing fresh air instead of rebreathing our on air over and over again. I wore the mask every where, wore sterile gloves, used the hand sanitizers, kept the social distancing, and still wound up in the hospital knocking on the door of death. So wake up people. The left has abolished everything good for our country. And some of you republicans who had voted the left to have our house, senate and whitehouse, are just as bad as they are. Therefore you are traitors to your own country.

  • P. Pesca says:

    I feel its personal. I refuse the vaccine for me and my family. Think about it, not enough testing time to know results. They have been working on things for cancer for many many years to no avail. Tell me America are you ready to accept something after 10 months. Take my chances with something that’s been around a long time. Have to noticed after all these years we have had NO flu cases this year. Just saying. God Bless you all!

  • Jon dougha says:

    GOVERNOR ABBOTT IS PUTTING A LOT OF PEOPLE AT RISK WHILE TRYING TO BE DEFIANT TO PRESIDENT BIDEN. BIDEN MADE IT MANDATORY AND SINCE ABBOTT IS A REPUBLICAN HES JUST DOING THIS TO IRRITATE BIDEN.

  • Tommy Thompson says:

    I live in Florida, I’m 75 years old and never wore a mask except at a doctors office. My wife is 70 and my mother is 93, like myself they never wore a mask except at the doctor’s office
    We are all doing fine. I expect some of this was and is, political control attempts from the left. Thank God for governors coming around to common sense. If you want to wear a mask, your free to do so. For myself, I choose the right to make my own FREE choice.

  • Megan says:

    I agree open the states and let people do as they see fit. Note that the vaccine is causing sterility, and if a man gets the vaccine and then has sex with a woman he will make her sterile! Wake up people! They are also trying to make it so our children must get the shot and if they dont will take them away from their parents. All of this information is available to everyone, just listen to the actual news, not just the crap they think you want to hear or the channels that the government has in their pocket. It’s time for us as “the people” to take our country back!!

  • Huapakechi says:

    covid has accomplished its’ purpose. The economy is trashed and the democrats have utilized the panic they invented in order to steal the election, so there is no purpose to continue the mask mandate.
    Has anyone noticed that the states which did not lock down and mandate masks did not have the illness and death tolls of the severest response? I would also point out that “statistics” show that the U.S. has a higher infection and death toll than any other comparable nation.

  • Reaper says:

    Masks do absolutely nothing except make people sick. These dumb ass morons who refuse to see reality and listen to the fraud Fauci are the real criminals. Fauci should be tried for crimes against humanity.

  • gary says:

    did you know that china has made more billionaires in the last year than any say it again. ANY time in the past…they are laughing at us.they did this to us on purpose

  • Van Taylor says:

    When it comes to getting the vaccine, I tend to agree with P. Pesca. I’m 70, my wife is 68, and we’re pretty healthy for our age. We get annual physical exams, go to the doctor – if we think there’s a problem and believe we should – and we watch our blood pressure and cholesterol. But, unless there’s a need or a reason, we try to avoid going to doctors.

    When it comes to getting this vaccine, many of our friends thought it was urgent and made it their complete priority. They asked us repeatedly, “Are you going to get the vaccine?” One of our friends said it was our “patriotic duty” to get the vaccine. Well, we’re patient, and, at least for now, we disagree. Some of the newsletters I read refer to the vaccine as a “genome,” not a vaccine at all, and, because it was “rushed to market,” very little is known about any future, adverse consequences from it. And which vaccine do you get? Do you really have a choice? What’s the rush?

    But, if getting this vaccine will determine if and where you can freely go or travel, then my wife and I might have to re-think our position and get a vaccine. It’s hard to imagine it, but what if going to the grocery store depended upon proof of vaccination? That proof might be in the form of a vaccination passport that was issued by the Government, and going anywhere or traveling might come down to presenting “your papers, please.” It would be just one more way for the Government to exert control over everyone.

    At least for now, as long as there is freedom of choice, when it comes to getting this vaccine, we’ll just plan to “wait and see.”

  • Katherine says:

    The real epidemic in this country is stupidity. Reading some of these comments confirms it… read the book, ‘Plague of Corruption’ and then tell me you think the vaccine is a panacea. Google the author’s name and watch how fast google deletes what you are reading. Every other commercial is for a pharma product and the others are for pharma lawsuits, related to drug that had been tested for ten years. If everyone wore a proper mask (no gaps, noseguard, etc) and stayed six feet apart and quit mixing households, raking cruises, partying, etc we could have stamped it out without closing businesses but everyone was too busy complaining about their ‘rights.’ Agree about Fauci and cdc…self interested…bad advice in the beginning (“no one needs a mask but health care workers” which allowed virus to get a foothold) ..I will keep my suspicions to myself about financial profits of various persons and entities resulting from virus…point is people should educate themselves about the virus, vaccine, pharma, etc instead of spouting off nonsense. I am not putting rodent and monkey materials in my body, containing who knows what unscreened rna virus material…

  • Rhonda says:

    I agree with lifting the mandate and with reopening businesses 100%.
    What was interesting to me was the the drug companies for many years have known we would have an epidemic. They had a formula already figured out for the vaccine. They just needed to know which virus we would be fighting. They were able to process these much faster because their is no “live” virus in the shot. It takes years to create a vaccine with a live virus because it is much riskier. I’ve had both shots. Have had no trouble. I have family members though that have had the virus and have long lasting effects from it! Nerve damage and clot damage. We followed the mandates but now we are free birds!

  • MJTOMAINO says:

    FINALLY! Now perhaps other states will stop forcing people to wear worthless masks! Stop destroying our economy! I expect blue states Will be last in line to listen to their citizens. They do love their power.😠

  • SonnyE says:

    How is a stupid paper mask going to slow the spread? It doesn’t, and hasn’t. Fouci is a puppet of the liberal left communist movement.
    Vaccinate, just like we do for so many other of these shit diseases and beat this newest man-made shit virus. We got our flu shots in the early fall. And we’ve gotten our Corona virus shots a couple of weeks ago (2nd). Done!
    I realize there will always be the Anti-Vaccers who think they can get by, until their unvaccinated kids die of the past diseases that have been stopped by vaccinating. Here’s your sign, Stupid.
    What in the hell makes some Politician an expert and ordering us to lock down? While the hypocrites go to get their hair done, or go to parties given by their donors who fund their campaigns.
    Wake up America! Before it’s too late. They don’t give a shit about you, only their own feathered nest at YOUR expense.
    Dump the ineffective masks, get the damn vaccine to the people and into them! So we can get on around this new idiocy.
    Remember, you have better than a 99.7% chance of surviving CV-19 if you did get the shit.
    And stop buying China made crap!

  • Gary says:

    Michigan dipshit governor is in bed with Biden. it will be a while before some understand they don’t have to use a mask. never did just something they (the government could scare you with.) tell the government to stick it. Amen.

  • Kent says:

    the wankers are like that whizzer with the comment name joke of “joe bitemine rules .. and the f..ing idiots ? they are the clowns that voted for joey and the negro vagina ..

  • sherril henderson says:

    The dems want to tell us what to do and when to do it. The mask should have been the individuals choice on whether to wear one or not. The dems made it a scare tactic for political reasons. Fauci is just one of them and was used as their puppet. Anyone with some common sense could have done a better job then he did. The country should never have been shot down.If we can’t get those A–holes out of office this country is lost!!!!

  • CZR2181 says:

    We must vote out every Democratic governor mayor we must get rid of them all they destroyed the country they destroyed the economy now they want to destroy our freedom it’s time for a collective vote of getting rid of all Democrats Joe Biden is a democratic political puppet placed there by a stolen election, and hopefully we won’t get stuck with the woman from the South Pacific whatever that means, CAMELA HORROR is Indian and black enough already we need to vote all Democrat out they are leading us down the road to Communism

  • David says:

    Joebidenrules, First, he’s ruling nothing. If you haven’t noticed obamas hand is up his ass worki f his mouth and his pen. Unfortunately biden cant even speak but he was cheated in the White House so we’re stuck with him. In fact, even amongst democrats his approval numbers are very low, and its safe to assume lower than they’re reporting, becsuse it’s the state run msm. He’s had 100,000 deaths in his first month. There were omly 220,000 the whole last year. There’s no need for a vacvine for a flu with a 99.7% sirvival rate, especially when you can still catch it, you still have to wear a mask and you can still spread it?! Yea, that makes a lot of sense. Besides, Slauchi has been wrong about EVERY SINGLE THING he has said. Remember him saying it wouldn’t even spread to the United States?! Hilarious! If you are too young or ignorant to remember he’s also the big AIDS vaccine failure. But hey, you go ahead and risk your life, or shortening it with the vaccine. Sinde it’s a very big protein inhibitor, this will kil and shorten the lives of many. The masks only provide 0.03% effectiveness anyway. That’s why now the ignoramouses are saying you need 2 or 3, which is why thr respectable medical professionals have said that’s ridiculous. In fact, one saud it was so stupid he didn’t know how to respond to it. Glad you’re lookong forward to helping fauci and gates(the eugenecist) take people out. That’s what this whole thing is, a farce, to help take people out of this world. Ask Cuomo!

  • Robert Schollenberger says:

    YOU SHOULD LET THE AUDIANCE ANSWER YOUR QUEWSTION INSTEAD OF HAVING PAT ANSWERS.
    THERE NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN A MASK MANDATE. THE HOLES IN THE MASKS ARE 10 TIME LARGER THAN THE VIRUS. IN ADDITION STUDIES HERE, DENMARKAND CHINA SAY THEY MAKE NO DIFFERENCE REFERENCE THE VIRUS, YET CAN CAUSE MORE HARM THAN THE VIRUS, IE LESS OXYGEN INTAKEM, MORE INTAKE OF CARBON DIOXIDE, BACTERIA ON MASK CAUSING PNEMONIA AND GUM AND TEETH DETERIATION. I COULD GO ON, BUT YOU GET THE DRIFT.

  • Inder nayyar says:

    I DONOT think that this lifting order is good and productive tThis virusu ie recurring in other variation. So the best is to take maximum precaution to save ourself.IF we can protect our Heath simply by wearing mask
    Better not to ploticalise this issue let the people continue to wear mask for there own health and safety

  • Jude says:

    Kudos to these states that have Governors with a set of gonads. Too bad here in KY we have a corrupt tyrant that is a wanna be Piglosi, Biden or Schummer Our state will stay locked down until enough of the a** kissers grow weary and their lips are so chaoed it is painful. Andy (Hitler) Beshear should have been impeached for things he has done since becoming Governor but the ball less legislature (Republ8can majority) could not muster the courage nor backbone to upset the Dim Wit Governor. We also have another real winner, Cocaine Mitch as our Senator.
