Coronavirus: Texas, Mississippi lift mask mandates, reopen businesses

The governors of Texas and Mississippi both announced Tuesday that they were removing coronavirus restrictions, ending their mask mandates and allowing businesses to reopen at 100 per cent capacity. Mississippi will lift the restrictions Wednesday, with Texas lifting their own the following week. The announcements came as other places in the U.S. also scaled back restrictions even as the CDC warns now is not the time to do so.
