Austin mask mandate:

"Lawyers for (Texas AG) Paxton, who sued to overturn the mask mandates as illegal and invalid, argued that Gov. Greg Abbott's pandemic-related executive orders trump local requirements under powers granted by the Texas Disaster Act."

So the AG logic is: COVID is a disaster, therefore the state forbids local prevention mandates. What?

Important note: "Travis County has a COVID-19 rate of 73.2 deaths per 100,000, compared with 160 per 100,000 residents statewide"

As a Vermonter by origin, I find it interesting the VT, ME and NH are all clustered near the bottom.

California mandated masks. Florida opened its restaurants. Did any of it matter?
Which Covid-19 restrictions really worked — and which ones really didn’t?
https://www.vox.com/coronavirus-covid19/22456544/covid-19-mask-mandates-lockdown-debate-evidence

Spoiler alert: the data is incredibly noisy, it's really difficult to say... but it looks like requiring masks indoors was a very good idea and a lot of the "social distancing" didn't accomplish much.

Tune back in in about two years when the data is crunched, peer reviewed and published.
