Texas Biggest Counties Extending Mask Mandate Until December!

Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley on Tuesday extended the county’s mask mandate until at least Nov. 30.

County commissioners also voted unanimously to extend the COVID-19-related declaration of disaster until Nov. 30, which allows the mask order to be in place.

The order reinforces Gov. Greg Abbott’s July 2 order, which requires people in counties with 20 or more confirmed COVID-19 cases to wear a face mask in buildings and businesses open to the public and outdoors where maintaining six feet of distance from another person isn’t feasible.

Tarrant County has reported 39,920 COVID-19 cases, including 515 deaths.
