The state of Wyoming will soon follow in the footsteps of Texas and Mississippi by dumping their mask mandate and reopening businesses at full capacity:
CNN – Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon announced that he is removing the statewide mask requirement and allowing restaurants, bars, theaters, and gyms to resume normal operations starting March 16.
Gordon pointed to declining numbers of active Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations, as well as the state’s vaccine rollout, as reasons for the changes.
The governor encouraged Wyoming citizens to “continue to take personal responsibility for their actions and stay diligent,” including by wearing masks indoors and observing requests by private businesses.
The gov is keeping the stated mask mandate for one sector:
Gordon is keeping the state’s mask requirement in place for K-12 schools.
I would imagine that despite the statewide mandate lifted, many cities, counties and individual businesses will still mandate the wearing of masks.
But at least the governor is moving the state in the right direction, back toward normalcy.
