@ttyymmnn Question, can cities and counties not enact their own mandates in Texas? In Arizona we never had a state mandate, it was always on a city and county basis.
I believe the answer is yes. My brother is in SA and he mentioned that Austin is a bit different. Adler (Austin's mayor) has been making his own rules all along.
I legitimately don't care what Texas does here. I hope it all goes well. No matter what happens, it serves as a good case study (either for more or less caution). The problem is that no matter what the data says, people are going to be political about it.
