Texas, Mississippi lifting mask mandates
Texas and Mississippi announced separately they would lift orders mandating masks and fully open businesses at full capacity. Both states cited a levelling off of Covid cases and a need to get people back in jobs.
Several other states have started to ease restrictions with a growing percentage of the population receiving Covid vaccinations. However health officials have warned states not to loosen restrictions too quickly. The country is still recording around 70,000 new Covid cases a day.
