Governors in the United States have either ended their state's COVID-19 mask mandate or are considering ending it soon - and have ordered the lifting of capacity limits and restrictions on companies imposed because of Covid.

For example, the mandate and restrictions in Utah are scheduled to end on April 10 under a law passed on March 5, and Governor Spencer Cox, a Republican, told Fox News on March 6 that he would not apply the veto. .

"We expect every adult in the state of Utah to be eligible for the vaccine by April 1," said Cox. Utah, he said, "will have about 10 million vaccines available by April 1,5, when that mandate ends."

Meanwhile, Texas, Mississippi, Iowa, Montana, and North Dakota have now ended, or will soon end, the statewide mouthguard imposed by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic. Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota and Tennessee have not enforced the "mask requirement" from the outset.

Alabama Governor Kay Ivey, a Republican, said on March 4 that the state will end its mandate in about a month, saying that from April 9 wearing mouth masks "will be a matter of personal responsibility, not a government mandate."

On March 2, Mississippi and Texas both ended their mask requirements and were running businesses at full capacity. The termination was condemned by President Joe Biden and other White House officials.

"Starting tomorrow, we will be lifting all of our mask mandates and businesses will be able to operate at full capacity without state-imposed rules," Mississippi's Republican Tate Reeves said in a Facebook post last week. “Our hospital admissions and the number of cases have fallen sharply, and the vaccine is spreading quickly. It's time!"

And Texas Governor Greg Abbott, also a Republican, said the state is "100 percent open."

"Too many Texans are excluded from the job market," said Abbott. “Too many small business owners are struggling to pay their bills. This must end. ”

Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont, a Democrat, also announced that some CCP virus rules will be repealed, including corporate and sporting event capacity limits. Amusement parks, he said, could also be opened. But Lamont said the state's mask mandate remains in effect.

In February, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, a Republican, lifted the mask requirement by saying, "We know what to do, and it doesn't require a government mandate to do it," while Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte, a Republican, last month allowed the state's mask rule to expire.

Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducey recently announced that he will implement the “next phase of business and security protocols,” including the lifting of corporate capacity limits and the return of major sporting events. However, Ducey said facial covering and social distancing would be required.

Gov. Jim Justice, a West Virginia Republican, said he would lift capacity restrictions on restaurants, bars and other businesses. Masks should still be worn.

"I keep listening to the medical experts," Justice said of masks. “We absolutely expect you to keep wearing your mask. You know, I'm not a fan of the masks either. But at the same time, we know they have saved many lives, and we know it's too early not to be vigilant. ”
