Other states, including MS, have also begun to relax restrictions and end requirements to wear masks citing the rate of vaccinations and lower numbers of COVID-19 cases, but infectious disease experts say changes in behavior now could risk another surge and the spread of more contagious variants.

Japanese carmaker Toyota, which has its US headquarters and a factory in Texas, said it was looking into the move by Governor Greg Abbott to roll back the mask mandate, and it doesn't contemplate any immediate changes. "He just eliminated the mandate to wear them".

Here is everything travelers need to know about the lifting of restrictions in Texas and how it could affect your trip.

Abbott announced on Tuesday that residents are no longer required to wear a face mask in public and that all businesses can open at full capacity starting next week, according to The Dallas Morning News.

"Removing state mandates does not end personal responsibility or the importance of caring for your family members, caring for your friends and caring for others in your community", Abbott said during a Chamber of Commerce event in Lubbock.

SC has removed limits on large gatherings, while capacity limits on restaurants in MA were removed.

When asked if the administration would take any steps to encourage or mandate that states stick to CDC guidelines, Slavitt said they are using federal control where they can but otherwise hope state leaders will listen.

During the previous administration of Republican President Donald Trump, who downplayed the severity of COVID-19 despite eventually becoming infected himself, not wearing a mask became a political statement. While vaccination programs are now underway as of the weekend only 7% of Texans have been vaccinated for Covid-19.

"Relaxing common-sense, non-intrusive safety protocols like wearing masks is a mistake", wrote EVP of communications and state affairs Jason Brewer.

He said it was "critical, critical, critical that people follow the science" and continue taking precautions such as wearing masks, socially distancing, and handwashing. Notably, the number of cases has falled in Texas in the last one month.

Why Has Texas Dropped Covid-19 Restrictions?

According to the Texas Governor, the economic cost of closing or reducing capacity for businesses can't go on any longer.

"For almost half a year, most businesses have been open either 75% or 50% and during that time, too many Texans have been sidelined from employment opportunities". "Too many small business owners have struggled to pay their bills". "It is now time to open Texas 100%".

MS ended its mask mandate on Wednesday.

"Businesses will be allowed to make their own policies". Reeves said. "The Governor's officer is getting out of the business of telling people what they can and can't do".

While some states are now lifting restrictions, the state of South Dakota never had any in the first place.

Travelers in the USA need to be aware that restrictions from state to state vary greatly. The protest called on the then-incoming Biden administration to extend the eviction moratorium initiated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Do you homework before traveling within or to the United States. Go to where you feel safe and respect the laws and culture of your destination.

The mask mandate, which has been in place since July, and occupancy limits on restaurants and retail stores end March 10.

"We can see conflict coming, sadly", Acevedo said. Contact your consulate and/or local authorities to confirm your nationality's entry and/or any changes to travel requirements before traveling.
