Brazos Valley Hospitalizations Continue to Decline After Mask Order Rescinded

The City Council of McKinney met in a special session Wednesday to address citizen complaints about the city’s mask mandate. McKinney City Council voted 7-0 to repeal their mask order. Mayor George Fuller said the move to repeal the ordinance represents McKinney following suit with other cities in the region.

The Governor’s mask order is still in effect, but without a local mandate, the city can choose to not enforce it. Since face coverings have been mandated by local and state officials, the CDC found in July that 85% of people with positive cases work a mask, which suggests they may not provide the proposed benefit.

Bryan, College Station, and Brazos County all have face-covering orders in effect. They were enacted in late June and have yet to be rescinded.
