It is Friday once again. Hopefully, everyone is safe and well. It is becoming more difficult to stay safe and well for sure.
Today the governor approved a workaround for requiring the wearing of masks here in Texas. A county judge in San Antonio found a loophole whereby the state and local municipalities cand enforce the wearing of masks in retail establishments. It is quite simple. Retailers are now required not to let anyone in the store without a mask. As we all know, social distancing and masks are very effective in stopping the spread of Covid-19. With people jamming into bars and onto beaches the new case and hospitalizations of Covid-19 victims has skyrocketed. So far voluntary compliance has not been effective. Let’s hope the new retail requirement can make a difference. For the life of me, I don’t understand why folks take this disease so casually especially when the young are getting sick.
In other news. There has been no response from the agent community on my queries. I guess I’ll have to send follow up notes to extract a decision.
Today’s JohnKu talks about individual rights in a pandemic. I hope you have a super weekend.
