Texas is doing a great job on giving out the moderna vaccine. My parents are scheduled to get their second shot next week.

My mom's friend and her husband got their second shot and had no side effects. Hope my mom and dad do as well.

They are very lucky! Mine made me very sick but no regrets.

My mom and dad are getting their second shot on Thursday. My mom and dad feel the same way. No worries about the after effects, they just want to get it overwith.

My brother and I have to get our vaccines as soon as they are available. I hope they work the children's one out soon. My daughter is 10 and I want her to feel and be safe as soon as possible.

Sorry you got very sick, but glad you are okay now.

Gov Abbott of Texas had a press conference in Lubbok Texas. After he and some other guy got through with kissing each other's asses, he said that on Wednesday, no more mandatory masks and businesses can open 100% capacity. He said it's up to the businesses to decide on masks. He thinks because there are vaccines and the rate of the virus is under 15% it is now safe to stop with the CDC is still saying to do. Wear masks, distance and wash your hands a lot. 

What a damn moron. The bottom line is more people will get the virus and die and then if it goes over 15% he will put the mandates back. What a fuck up! How many people have to get this virus for him to realize it's not slowing down nor is it going away anytime soon. Gtting back to normal is going to cost more precious Texas lives since they are so damn proud of being a Texan! Unreal. He's as stupid as the Gov of Florida too. My mom's cousin lives there. Still hasen't gotten her 1 vaccine and she's 67 and they had over 7000 people get the virus today. I guess as long as states make money they don't care who dies, which is usually the poorest of people. 

Who votes for these morons? This makes me sick.

Also there is no official cure for the sick with the virus so they continue to die or possibly get better, but still have long lasting effects.

One Texas man got the virus back in March of last year. He's lungs are super weak and still can't get he's strength back. he needs oxygen to walk more than a mile or more. He told the news if there are still people who don't believe this virus is real, look at him. 

Now the CDC stays to keep the mandates, yet Texas and Florida govs to name a few are taking away the masks and opening up restaurants and bars to 100%. Here we go again! Meanwhile, those variants are still coming and doctors are still not sure these vaccines will stop this virus.

I think it's going to cost more lives. the cdc and doctors agree it is too soon to lift any restrictions, but yet again because Abbott is a Republican gov and President Biden is a Democratic, it's a political move yet again. Texas has bigger egos than New York ever will.

The Florida Gov had ignored making masks mandatory and many lives have been lost and continue to be lost. Wail until Spring break week. Many morons will be paying the price.

As long as states make money it's all they care about.

maybe Gov. Abbott should consider making pot legal and that will bring the economy up quicker and won't cost many more lives.

I guess we will see how this goes 2 or 3 weeks from next Wednesday.

I only hope people use their common sense, but I don't have much faith in that.

Texas lifting restrictions and mask mandates is going to end up setting the US way back again. Awesome. 

I am going to go out on a limb and stay that is highly unlikely to happen.  We'll see.  If hospitals are over-run, the bodies are piling up, supply lines break down, and the zombies start coming over the wall.  Until then, your histarical perditions are noted

Between RussTCB and dontdamn attitude about Texas I think even further illustrates the deep divide that will likely only get worse.  If it were truly for political reasons it would have been lifted earlier.  Ok, fine.  It would have taken courage to shut down the economy in March 2020.  It will also take courage to re-open the economies and let life go to normal in March 2021.  No matter what anyone does, there will always be criticism and all that.  BTW, I suspect not much will change for most people.  The governor doesn't have control over any major city or private business.  Listening to the UFC 259 press conference, all of the majors have politely declined having a UFC PPV there.  I suspect not much as changed but the state has gotten out of the way of local jurisdictions from making their own decisions.  What mass gatherings have taken place in Florida that didn't follow CDC guidance?

Let's set all of that aside.  The groups and people recommending more lockdowns and delaying the return to normal life aren't impacted by any of their decisions.  I suspect no one from CDC recommending any of these health guidance will never lose a paycheck or worry about losing their job.  I suspect the elected officials and city majors will never worry about the same thing - while still enjoying their favorite restaurant or getting their hair done.

That's fair. Those are really good points and I honestly, I have no basis for the original post regarding Texas anyway. 

I've tried to find a balance through this whole thing. I didn't want to be all doom & gloom but I also didn't want to be flippant with no regard for anyone else. So I didn't mean for my post to come off as "we're all gonna die because of Texas" lol.

The city of Houston has all 4 variants of the covid virus and knowing this the Gov still wants Texas open 100 % and no masks mandate.

The Dallas Judge jenkins is telling Texans to listen to the doctors and health departments and continue to do what we've been doing. I wander how many will listen to him come Wednesday. the bars will be open and some wants masks and others don't. Let's see come April how many younger people will get the virus and spread it when they go home and back to school. It's a shame that people have to get sick or die for a some states to realize the virus is still here and strong and spreading.

The Dallas morning news had a very sad story about a woman who lost her husband to the virus and then her daughter. she is taking care of her grandson and the poor baby has no idea his mom is dead.  Reading this makes you realize how this virus has torn families apart and even after the deaths you are still living with the nightmare for a long time.

It's not just Texas. Mississippi has the same rule as well as Florida, who never had a mask mandate. This virus is still alive and well and as strong as ever. I know it sucks after a year to still do what the doctors and health departments say, but i would rather wear a mask a little longer than get this virus and get sick and possibly die. My friends who are nurses see this everyday and it's taking a toll on everyone. 

After patients who have gotten over the virus aren't still all that well. The long haulers is a real thing and I don't want to continue to feel lousy even after the virus is supposedly gone from me. There are still things that doctors don't know about this virus and that's got to scare us all.

A lot of cities in Texas have begun vaccination teachers this week. They are getting the J&J shot. My city has a two week break so hopefully our teachers can get vaccinated before school begins again the end of the month.

At least the Dallas/Fort Worth area are trying to get this done quickly. It'll keep teachers and our kids safe for the time being.

Tomorrow the masks come off in Texas.

Some restaurant in Houston was going to have a "take your mask off" party, but the city said no. This restaurant will be closed tomorrow but I'm sure it'll be open for business every day after. South Padre Island is getting ready for spring break next week.

The covid virus is very happy about this.

One Mexican restaurant still requires masks for their workers and any customers. Some people were pissed and threatened to tell immigration to see if their workers have their green cards. The owner feels this is racist and I agree with him. It's up to any business to enforce what they want of their employees and customers, but since Abbott says masks aren't mandatory I knew there would be trouble.

Bars can be open 100% too and I doubt they will require masks. All about money.

Guess we will see in a few weeks how high the numbers rise for covid patients since American is a long way off of vaccinating most people.

Dallas is allowing 50 year olds to get the vaccine too.

I went to the dentist today and all doctors's office are requiring masks.  

The news showed some morons in a bar last night at midnight when the mandate was over and they had a fun time by taking down the masks signs. I said wait for a few weeks and let's count how high the numbers go back up again.

And I'm tired of the news people telling you how you Gov Abbott took away the mask mandate and then showing a doctor explaining why wearing a mask is still the right thing to do. Abbott knows what the doctors and cdc are saying and he doesn't give a fuck!

Get ready for the 3rd wave everyone end this summer 

I totally agree with you. So many people who have lost loved ones to the virus are telling others, but is anyone listening? I mean the virus has killed over 540,000 people and over a million have gotten the virus so many of us know someone or have been touched by it, so are there still people out there who have to be told how deadly this virus still is?

I literally only know 1 person who had it bad in 12 months that is 

I know a few people who have gotten the virus, but luckily have gotten better, but like I said the news does show you families who have lost a loved one or more and how they plead with people to realize this virus is real and to still listen to the health department.

I'm curious to see how many won't wear a mask anymore. Most stores and doctors's office still want you to wear a mask and their workers do too.  All the news stations cover "covid a year later" and they say and I agree that it's really not any better than last year, but wearing a mask and not going into crowds has helped, but now who knows? I will continue to do what I have been doing for the past year and probably will for a long while.
