Ride the bus, wear a mask, says Cap Metro

Wednesday, March 3, 2021 by Tai Moses

Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order yesterday rolling back the state mandate to wear face masks in public areas, spurning the advice of public health professionals who warn that eliminating masks could lead to a spike in Covid hospitalizations. In response to the governor’s order, Capital Metro announced that it “will continue to maintain the federal requirement to wear a face mask on our vehicles and at our facilities, in compliance with the federal order requiring the wearing of masks … to protect the health and safety of our customers, staff and community.”
